“I was trying to simplify a Meringue Buttercream/Cream Cheese frosting recipe for a Carrot Cake that I make for my son's restaurant and decided to try a jar of Marshmallow Creme in place of the tedious job of making the meringue. It is wonderful and cuts the time in half. Like other Buttercreams, it doesn't hold up real well in hot weather, so you can refrigerate it.”
