I don't know about you, but one of the best parts about birthdays is cake.
And one of the best part about cakes is icing.
And health-wise, the best part about icing is it doesn't have to be full of preservatives or any other crappy ingredients that come in store-bought canned icings.
You can make it in your own home with nourishing ingredients. Like the modern day Julia Child that you are.
Quick tip: If it makes more than you need- freeze it!
