Dobash Frosting (for Dobash Cake, Hawaiian Style)

Laura Manuel-Arrighi


Per request, I am posting this frosting separately so people can just search for frosting. This is my family tested Dobash recipe. Don't let the richness fool you. We love this frosting for it's light and just right sweetness. I have also posted the full recipe for the cake with the frosting. I hope you like it as much as we do!
