Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake with Brown Sugar Glace

I cannot get over my obsession with Pumpkin Spice this year.  If that is wrong, I just don't want to be right.  Yesterday was your perfect Fall day--leaves blowing around, a slight chill in the air, and some overcast weather.  It was perfect for baking.  This Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze hit the spot and quickly became a favorite fall dessert.  I definitely have plans to make it for Thanksgiving since it's a fun twist on a traditional holiday dessert!  I hope you enjoy!
