    I had the worst time spreading the butter/icing sugar/yolks mixture over the cooled crust. Very sticky.

    Any hints?

      Try dropping spoonfuls spread out over the crust so it doesn’t have as far to spread. When the whipped cream mixture goes on top it will cover up any mess!

    I think it was great but I do agree the icing was hard but with that tip it help. The cake was the best but, a little more frosting and less crust.
