Prepare cake mix according to package directions, adding pudding mix and replacing 1/2 C. of water with the rum.
Put cake mix in prepared pan.  Bake according to box directions for bundt pan (usually 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees).  Remove cake from pan and cool on wire rack.
 While cake is baking, prepare glaze.  Place all of the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan.  Bring to a slow boil over med. heat.  Simmer for 2-3 minutes until glaze starts to thicken.

Place still warm cake on serving platter and slowly drizzle the glaze over the cake allowing it to absorb into cake.
