Notes

I made the icing quite late at night so I did not have time to bring the cream cheese & butter to room temperature. This led to the little bits in the frosting that did not completely mix in. This detracts from the aesthetics but it still tastes super yummy. Definitely 5/5

This recipe is super-easy & it is really, really moist (I really hate that word but it fits in this case). All my co-workers loved it. I even got a few "best ever" compliments. Definitely worth a try.
