This Is the recipe I used to frost MICHELLE'S FAVORITE CHOCOLATE MAYONNAISE CAKE. My husband requested that I make the cake but use a Peanut Butter Frosting.

I basically used my Cream Cheese Frosting recipe but omitted the Cream Cheese to allow the flavors from the Peanut Butter to come through. He truly loved the cake. I have made this frosting for cup Cakes and other cakes before but never for the Mayonnaise Cake. Omitting the cream cheese allows the peanut butter flavor to become more prominent. It really does compliment the chocolate flavors of the cake. A quick, simple & easy recipe.
