Recipe by Angie1976

This cake came from my grandmother's best friend. She has made it for our family Christmas and birthday dinners for years.

I did not make the cake only the icing and i LOVED it. I used this icing with recipe #81687 (strawberry cake). They go really well together. This icing recipe is perfect but it makes ALOT, had enough to frost (3) 13x9 cakes. So I froze what i did not use (freezes well). Next time I will make only 1/2 the recipe. As an extra special treat top your favorite pound cake with fruit of your choice and put a dollop of this icing on top YUMMY!! Thank you for sharing Angie =)
