Recipe by JamesDean'sGirl
When spread on yellow cake or cupcakes, dessert becomes reminiscent of Tasty Kake's Kandy Kakes:) Yummy! But for those who dote on rich and intensely flavored bites, spread this on peanut butter or chocolate cakes:)

Tasty! I used this recipe to frost a yellow cake. DH and I really enjoyed the flavor combination. The consistency was different than other frosting recipes I've made. It was very smooth and kind of glossy. This recipe made enough to cover my 9x9 cake with a little to spare. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
