I’m going to keep this very simple.


They are really that good.
Seriously good.
I’m never going to fit into my jeans and I don’t really care good.

Keep in mind…I don’t like cake
or frosting

I was eating this frosting with a spoon,
right from the bowl.

Not proud, but I did it, and I’m going back for more.

I’m not saying this because I made the frosting, BUT…
it is the BEST frosting I have ever tasted.

Yes, I did say so myself:)
