Superstar VegWebber of the Week: icephrosty!
Our Superstar VegWebber of the week is icephrosty (http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=85039)! Not only is she from St Louis, where two of my favorite VegNews staff members hail from, she also has the BEST recipe for King Cake (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=26834) that I've ever made. I had this at a Marti Gras party this year, and it was off the hook! The cake and the party! In fact, I might have to make it again today for my boyfriend's birthday... it's pretty much my new go-to cake recipe! Thanks, icephrosty!! Now, check out her answers below and let her know how rad and amazing she is. Then, make this cake: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=26834!
