I'm the kind of person who scrapes the frosting off of store-bought cakes ... I just don't care for it. My kids love it because that usually means they get extra frosting! I don't care for canned frosting too much either but I have used it on a rare occasion - like for my Firecracker Cake or my Halloween Bundt Cake. You can say that I'm sort of a frosting snob.
