One girl put the frosting on each one of her fingers and when she was done eating the muffin she licked each one of her fingers and savored the frosting! Another said the best way to eat is to take the bottom off and eat it first and then eat the top and frosting together! I thought the frosting was going to be so sweet with the marshmallow cream; but, it wasn't. Couldn't even taste the marshmallow. Great job!” - Jaycee1

I'd like to state the obvious here. All these recipes can be used with squash as well. There really is no difference between the two vegetables. Yellow squash and crook neck squash are the ones closest in taste. In fact I can hardly tell the difference!

This is SO GOOD!!
I made it a couple nights before my husband went out of town. I literally had to give most of it to my neighbors, because it is so fabulous, I was afraid I would just eat the entire cake myself!!
HIGHLY recommended!
I'm taking it for my Thanksgiving desert !
