This is delicioius. It's not as sickly as buttercream but is much nicer than plain glace icing. It sets, but not too solidly, so it's in between butter icing & glace. This makes enough to ice and fill and 8inch cake.
This cake is bursting with buttery goodness! It's very moist and good with whatever icing you want to put with it! Fudgy frosting is my favourite!
I was given this about 20 years ago, baked by a cookery teacher friend. I've never dared change it, it's been such an absolute family favourite, always gorgeous, never lets you down. We particularly love the frosting, which uses a little brown sugar instead of icing sugar, giving a more subtle flavour. Some like the pineapple pieces and nuts, others don't: they affect texture rather than taste so use as preferred.
This is an icing that is great for Halloween because it's green! It is also a great icing alternative for vegans. Lemon or orange juice can be substituted for the lime juice.

These cupcakes are deliciously moist. Sweet potatoes are steamed until tender, then beaten with eggs, oil, sugar and flour, before being baked into cupcakes and iced with a cream cheese frosting.
