"This cake is so delicious. I've made it approx. 10 times and EVERYONE loves it and asks for the recipe. My Bunco group requests it everytime I host. Just make sure your icing is warm enough and it will drizzle just right."

"I've tried the recipe for the topping several times and cannot get it to "drizzle" consistency...any suggestions?"
