Spice Up Your Love of Cake With the Creamy Frosty

My Grandmother's Recipes and Other Old Time NostalgiaThree Cupcakes

I love this frosting recipe - thank you Grandma Katie. This Vanilla Cream Frosting is delicious as is - you can even add food coloring to match your party theme. When you're in the mood for something a bit different my grandma's cooking journal includes four variations that are delightfully different.

Use this recipe on cakes, cupcakes, scones, muffins, and or sandwiched between two graham crackers. Whip up a batch today and put a smile on someone's face! My Grandma's Recipes and Other Old Time Nostalgia
