Hi there !Valentines day!another excuse for indulging in chocolate and frosting.This frosting is called the best frosting in the world(by missydew)..I tried it for the first time today and agree totally!Its light and wonderful,don't let the ingrds scare you.My daughter Bambi helped out with the making of the cupcakes and the decorating ..the kids were at home today because the weather was awful....and they PROMISED to study.....she decided that she HAD to help with the cupcakes and my son just had to lie flat on his back and contemplate whats up with the roof.! Studies...hah!
