My first teaching job was at a school (suburb of Detroit) where the secretary made a cake for each month in which there were employee birthdays, and this was the recipe for icing that she always used. I loved it and got the recipe from her (1960-1961). Many moves have taken place since then, and I had lost the recipe. I am very happy to become reacquainted with it. I don't make many cakes anymore, but when I do this is the recipe I will use. So happy to have found it at this site. Thanks jdub1371!
