Here is the recipie for a cake that I did and posted it on this site. Everyone asked me for the recipie so I thought I would post it. The cake recipie if from the cake doctor and I modified it to use mangos. The filling is a recipie that I got from cakecentral (fresh Strawberry filling) and I modified that. I use a creamcheese buttercream icing! Hope you enjoy it! Jen

- Combine butter, creamcheese, vanilla and salt together, slowly add icing sugar. If the icing is a stiff consistency the add water to soften to spread on cake
- If put in the fridge this icing is good to decorate with.
