Top Review by Rock Star Mama

i'm only rating the frosting b/c i didn't make the cake (just being lazy) follow this to the letter & it will be AMAZING. my 6-year old son actually said "mommy this frosting is fabulous". i thought that was pretty hilarious. then he said "don't ever make anything different, always make this frosting". it is very unique, it basically tastes like an old-time malt whipped into fluffy frosting that slightly hardens to the touch, which reminds me of bakery quality.
