Personal Notes:
This is a recipe Meme came up with herself and is known for it. Meme used to do cakes for every occasion for her family and friends and sometimes just when someone needed a pick me up. I remember learning how to decorate cakes with Meme and how to make this recipe. Whenever I make this frosting, I always think of her.
