Barbara's Bake Shoppe Iowa City, IA, mid-1970s

sray1203 | Jan 13, 201212:40 AM     9

I went to college there, this was a little shop down one of the streets from the Pentacris(sp?). They used to make these crisp sugar cookies with a frosting that was not buttercream, not cream cheese, and not royal icing but sweet enough to put you into a diabetic coma. I am thinking this might have been a poured fondant. If anyone has any idea what this might have been, I would appreciate knowing. It is my fondest wish to have something like this again before I die.
