I like that there is a lower amount of sugar in the topping rather than the normal 3-4 cups for normal frosting. (There are other places to reduce the calories if one desires--like lo-fat sour cream and lo fat buttermilk,). I liked the flavor enhancement idea of reducing the cola down to 1 cups. And, NO ELECTRIC MIXER!!! This recipe expresses the know-how of a very talented baker. Thank you Peggy Walpert. I'm looking forward to making this!
