Glaze for a Cake -Without Powdered Sugar???

I'm making a chocolate bundt cake with a coconut filling and would like to make either a vanilla or coconut glaze. The cake is way too rich for a boiled frosting, but I really don't like powdered sugar. Other ideas are most welcome.

I'm not sure which recipe you mean, mickle, but there's a link in both Merrill's and June's replies.

melted chocolate or a ganache frosting

So it's essentially a simple syrup with whatever flavorings you want? Very simple and infinitely adaptable!

I like to do a glaze this way on pound/bundt cakes. It's basically the same method as in the link above, but you poke holes in the hot cake and pour the warm glaze over. Then follow the rest of the glaze directions here: http://food52.com/recipes/22096-omg-coconut-pound-cake
