For the Frosting.:

3. Scoop it on the cake and spread evenly. Refrigerate for 30 mints and serve.
I sprinkled some sugar strands to decorate it.
1. Just check the cake after 4 mints as it may vary with oven. Mine took completely 5 mins .
2. If you are decorating do it before you refrigerate it. So that it sticks well.
3. You can also try butter cream frosting or just dust with some icing sugar.
