“This is a delicious recipe. Made it a few times and made some changes along the way. Such as substituting the frosting stuffing with cream cheese! It's my fav! And also making the frosting from scratch rather than the store bought one. You can basically try any sort of stuffing or frosting you desire. It's very easy to make... enjoy!”
