Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I always double the frosting recipe, more on this cake is delicious! Doubling also allows for extra frosting to be poured into a small sprayed dish or pan to eat as fudge. This frosting sets up & tastes like fudge. Travis & Michele loved the frosting fudge made from this recipe but not the cake. This is Tim's favorite cake
