- Rule no 1 – Icing is optional (but it is amazing!)
- Rule no 2 – The ingredients must all be room temperature!
- Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth. If you sticked to rule no 2, then it’s going to be easy. If you did not, then you just need to wait until they melt together.
- Wait until the cake is well cold to spread the icing on it. Mmmm…
