Mix all ingredients for icing together until just combined.  Spread over top of cooled cake.


  1. I see someone else reads Southern Living! This is our fave.

  2. Southern living? Was this in Southern living? I absolutely love this recipe. I would beg my grandmother to make this cake!

  3. Yes, that's where Shawna and I first saw it and immediately knew we had to make it. This was about 2 or 3 years ago. Almost exactly the same recipe. I'm sure it's been around forever, we just had never had it until then.

  4. That is cool! I love this recipe.. The jello makes it so tasty! The icing is just perfect!
    Aunt Carolyn must have molded our palate! Do you have any of her recipes? I need to email her for her cheeseball (S) recipes! YUM!
