  1. I loved this cake too! Couldn't you just eat the frosting all by itself?

    1. Oh my word....and I don't even like frosting but this was sooooo good.

  2. OK, definitely making this one!

  3. I'm craving that frosting all over again seeing your photos - this was a great quick and easy one!

  4. As much as I enjoy baking I love that these little cakes don't take long to bake. That frosting looks like the kind you're tempted to eat with a spoon. It looks really yummy!
