Preheat oven to 350°F. Blend butter with flour to form paste; brush all over inside of 10-cup Bundt pan.

Cake: In large bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, molasses and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cloves; stir into egg mixture just until smooth. 

Scrape batter into prepared pan, smoothing top. Bake until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Invert onto rack; remove pan. Let cool completely. Transfer to cake plate.

Glaze: In bowl, whisk icing sugar with milk. Add additional milk, 1/4 tsp at a time, if needed, until consistency of molasses. Drizzle over cake.

Test Kitchen Make-Ahead: Store the cake in a large resealable plastic bag at room temperature or in the fridge for up to four days, or freeze it for up to two weeks. Glaze just before serving.
