This was given to me year or so ago by my friend, Linda Story, now Linda VanSteenbergen. She used to decorate cakes and this was the frosting/icing that she used to do that. It is really really good. She and I have a lot of history together and won't tell on each other (other than give away recipes). Ha.

Think of me when you use this. Enjoy!!
