Bake cake until top springs back when lightly pressed, 25 minutes. Loosen cake by running a metal spatula around the sides of pan. Invert cake onto a wire rack. Remove pan, leaving waxed paper on cake. Turn cake right-side up. Cool completely on rack.

Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Press plastic wrap on surface. Chill for 30 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut cake horizontally in half. Carefully remove waxed paper. Place bottom layer on a serving plate. Spread evenly with filling. Top with remaining cake layer. To prepare glaze, in a saucepan, bring sugar, corn syrup, and water to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat.
