Notes

This is my Grandmother's recipe. It's perfect for any occasion you want cut-outs.

Is there really an egg in the frosting? I wasn't sure if that was a typo. Please let us know. Won't that make you sick to have a raw egg in the frosting? Maybe I could substitute egg beaters instead. Sounds interesting and peaked my interest. I will see if you post. Thanks
