Thank you so very, very much for posting this recipe! My grandmother used to use this for her spicecakes, and I *know* that this has to be what she iced them with- have never found a recipe for it before! Merry Christmas, you have made my holiday season!!! :D
I agree with others that this is just the very best icing for spice cake, but have you tried it on soft applesauce cookies? Out of this world!!
Yummy icing I always use it on spice cake too.
Excellent!! I am pairing it with a Spice Bread Recipe. I did not have any heavy cream so I just added 2% milk and it came out great. I also added a little bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. Delicious!! and super easy!!
I made this to go on some pumpkin cupcakes I made. Per the submitter's note, I added a little more powdered sugar to make my icing thicker. I also tried the leftover icing on french toast and it was very tasty.
Try it on a butter pecan cake.....TO DIE FOR!!
