cake icing is the fondant icing doesn’t taste good and is
usually peeled off the slice of cake, like an orange rind,
and left on the plate.

Mother's Day Triangle Cake Tutorial.
Peggy says, "My train of thought is that it is likely a young person will be
making a dessert for Mom on Mother’s Day. Time is usually in short
supply and young folks are just learning their way around the
kitchen. So, this is my very simple version of a Triangle Cake.
If you want to, you can make your own pound cake and chocolate
icing. You can also vary the cake by applying with a pastry brush, a
very thin layer of warmed seedless raspberry jam to each layer of
the cake before spreading the icing on the layer."
