    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    This is absolutely "THE BEST" frosting in the world... It's an old fashioned recipe that my gram used for years on all her homemade cakes including Wacky, Spice, and her Raisin Cakes. It has been a favorite of my family for over 50 years, and will be passed down to my grandaughter(s), when and if I have some :) I lost this recipe at one point and was frantic, but found it again rummaging through my cookbooks... I was SO HAPPY!!! Try this one and see why... Enjoy!

      This frosting is really sweet, it goes very well with my healthy version cupcakes, since they're not super sweet. I think paired with a sweet cake/cupcake recipe it might be a little too much. Very yummy and very simple.

      I'm sorry to say I just don't see what the fuss is about. To me this was just about the same as any other buttercream type frosting.
