“My name is Madison and I am actually longhorn fanatics daughter ( who uses this website a lot more!) and i found this recipe in a magazine and made some accidental changes... :) but the changes i think made it better! for example i accidentally put less powdered sugar in the frosting, but it would have been too sweet if i had put all of it!”
