Thank you so very, very much for posting this recipe! My grandmother used to use this for her spicecakes, and I *know* that this has to be what she iced them with- have never found a recipe for it before! Merry Christmas, you have made my holiday season!!! :D

I agree with others that this is just the very best icing for spice cake, but have you tried it on soft applesauce cookies? Out of this world!!
