Isn’t that easy? The hardest part was waiting for the cake to bake and to cool before frosting. Seriously, it all smelled so good that it was horrible having to wait around for the cake cool. The cake was great. My whole boyfriend’s family would agree. They all loved it. We each had multiple pieces of it. It went really quickly. Even my boyfriend’s sister who doesn’t like overly sweet things (especially frosting) liked it.

Disclosure: I received coupons to try the frosting and a spatula for free. No compensation was received. The opinions expressed are my own.
