This is the frosting I made to go with the Over The Top Italian Cream Birthday Cake that I made for my husband 3 months after his birthday had passed.

He was really impressed, and really likes the nuts that were IN the frosting instead of on the outside of the cake ON THE FROSTING.

It is easy and the addition of the Almond Extract and Amaretto really did wonders to enhance the flavor of the frosting.

It is a winner in our household, and I am sure it will become one of your favorites as well.
