Great, easy frosting for a Devil's Food Cake

Top Review by artzylady2002

While this was an easy recipe to make, what I didn't like about it is that it simply doesn't hold up for very long, possibly because of the egg whites. It evaporates, even as yearly as 10 hours after frosting. Since I like to do make cakes ahead of time, the frosting between layers was completely gone when I cut it! I would not use it again.

Ingredients Nutrition
