    Easy Peasy!

    I used Crisco instead of oil and they looked perfect, crinkly, and puffy!

    Confectioners' Sugar Frosting

    This reminds me of my mothers frosting she made for our birthday cakes. We all loved it. Brings back good memories. Thanks for the recipe memories. Karen (1 of 6 girls)
