The frosting for this cake was super easy to make and not too sweet! The cake is sweet enough and you want to be able to eat a lot of it, right?!!!! ;)
I am making a change to the recipe because I thought my cake tasted a bit too eggy. My change is reflected below, so you don't have that problem when you make it! :)
Why cook it in the slow cooker and not the oven? Well, for me, I think it's AWESOME to say I did it in the Slow Cooker! You may not think so, LOL. Of course, the edges get a little crispy, but it's really no big deal. It still tastes really good. I hope you get brave and give it a go!
I would like to thank Mary-Stewart for providing me with this recipe and inspiring me to give it a go in the Slow Cooker!

Poke holes in the cake all over with a toothpick while still in the Slow Cooker.
