@godi Please correct the cake's butter measurement.  It should be 1 stick butter, NOT 1/2.Smiley Happy

I see in your original post it is showing 1 stick of butter.  Not sure where the discrepancy came up.  Anyway, I have already printed it out to try!!

@Mumof2 The icing will be lind of firm, not fluffy like butter cream.  It was 75 in our house yesterday and the leftovers weren't right.  I'm keeping it in the fridge.  The textures are wonderful the way they're meant to be.Smiley Happy
