To make the almond glaze, mix the confectioners' sugar, almond extract, rum, and 1 to 2 T of water. Beat until glaze is smooth and of the right consistency. Add more water to thin if neccessary. Spread the warm cake with the almond glaze. Cut cake into 1 X 2 1/2-inch bars while still warm. Spice bars keep 6 to 8 weeks in a sealed container if not glazed. Makes 4 dozen bars.
