For Glaze:

rinse out the saucepan and wipe it dry. Place the Milky Way bars into saucepan over medium low heat. Add butter and water. Cook, stirring until smooth 3 to 4 minutes. Let glaze cool for 10 minutes.

Put cake onto serving platter over the cake so that it drips down the sides. Let cake rest for 10 minutes before serving.

I also melted caramel over the glaze... yummy!!

I make cakes for everyone's birthday at work. John LOVES cake! Most everyone just asks for some kind of cake mix, not John, he picked out this one!! Many said it was the best cake I ever made, even better than the carrot cake I am known for!
