Very yummy, especially with the hint of almond. The glaze never fully melted for me, but turned into a thick mix similar to fudge, so I could not dip the cakes, but used a tiny rubber spatula to spread it on top. This worked well enough, though probably a bit messier. All in all, super easy and super delicious!
