Easy and fast recipe. I substituted lemon rind and lemon juice for the rum and topped a sponge cake with mango filling with this recipe. It turned out great, rich but refreshing. Two thumbs up by every member of my family. Delicious!!!

Very good. I chose not to use rum and added 1T. of cinnamon & vanilla...yummy. This made the perfect topping for my cheesecake but I had extra so next time I will half to top my cheesecake with! Thanks for the recipe!

I should have added that the VANILLA extract is after your taste. I use about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon :)
