    Okay – you’ve inspired me – I’m going to make this one on the weekend :). Chris’ birthday on Monday, so this will be his birthday cake! I have never made cream cheese frosting before, so am looking forward to this challenge!

    • YAY! 😀
      When I made the frosting it was a bit too runny for my liking, a few minutes in the fridge does the trick. I guess it depends what kind of cream cheese you use. Because they specified a certain brand that wasn’t available. Looking forward to your pics!!!
