Delicious! I used this on a red velvet cake, and it was perfect, however I can see it being used on almost any cake. It would be great to dip cookies in or any baked good. It was a little more liquid than I had thought it would be, so we ended up putting only some over the whole cake, and then adding more to individual slices. Very, very tasty, my whole family loved it!
