Bailey's Irish Cream Cake

With St. Patrick's Day coming up, I started searching for a tasty dessert.  I found a delicious recipe for Bailey's Irish Cream cake.  You start with a cake mix, add pudding, eggs and Bailey's Irish Cream. I modified the recipe some by omitting the nuts and using a chocolate cake mix instead of a yellow cake mix.  The recipe had a cream frosting, but I opted  for a glaze.   You could also dust the cake with confectioners sugar.   The cake was moist and had just the right flavoring of Bailey's Irish Cream.
