I have been using this recipe for years...the only change I've ever made was to use butter instead of margarine and it always gets rave reviews. I only make half a batch at a time ~ that amount is enough to generously frost my cinnabons and a 9x13 carrot cake! If I'm not baking a cake right away I store the leftover in the fridge...just warm to room temp and rebeat before using. It keeps very well. I recently moved and lost my copy and couldn't locate this recipe on copycat...thank you RecipeZaar for "saving the day" for me!
Wow! This is simply amazing! I cut all ingredients in half because it makes so much more than we could use! My family drools over this one!
