    This is my all time fav icing. It was part of a cake that our family made in the south in the US. Grandma made it for every birthday. Normally this tops a white cake with a custard filling. However, I have added some boysenberry syrup and it turned purple and tasted fabbbbbb. Also, you can leave as is and top with toasted coconut. Enjoy!
