Recipe by Sara 76

Use this icing to fill and frost Delicious Nut Cake( Delicious Nut Cake). This recipe comes from the "Gone With The Wind Cook Book - Famous Southern Cooking Recipes". There is a note in the foreward which I love: "Gone With The Wind told of a style of living. as well as a romantic drama, A way of living, playing, and eating that thrilled us all."
