This review is from: The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook: Old-Fashioned Recipes from New York's Sweetest Bakery (Hardcover)
I purchased this book fairly recently. The Cake recipes sound just wonderful! I decided to make the Hummingbird Cake which was a 'breeze' I then turned to the Cream Cheese icing, which is described as not too sweet, perfect for the Hummingbird cake. Not too sweet, 5 cups of confectioners sugar (icing sugar) just for one 2 layer 9" Cake? I went ahead and made it anyway, sooo sweet, I was asked if I had poured condensed milk over the cake? Maybe I made a mistake. I followed instructions very carefully.
It may sound as though I'm being overly critical, I hope not.
I will try other recipes from this book, as they are very inviting, in future I will add sugar to the icing/frosting recipes to taste!
