I never liked cakes with heavy decoration from the bakery. But for my own birthday last week I made a cake with icing on top. This is the first time I used an icing reciepe and it turned out awfully sweet. My boys tried just one bite and they gave up!

Buttercream Icing

October 17, 2010 - 7:50pm -- ronhol

I'm looking for a killer butter cream icing recipe.


When I was a kid, we had a German lady living across the street who made the worlds best butter cream frosting.


Mildly sweet, rich and creamy, to die for.


I saw one somewhere recently, I thought it was on this board, but search did not render it.


I thought it was on the homemade chocolate cake thread, which I cannot find either.


Any help would be appreciated!

Well, it's been a while since I've gotten on here, and I've had plenty of time to mess up my kitchen with my experiments and ideas. For the holidays, however, I made something everyone likes: Pumpkin Bread and Triple Chocolate Fudge Cookies.


 


I've done the cookies before, but this was my first time doing pumpkin bread, but it still turned out FANTASTIC. It was tastey in a spice way, warm, just a little bit crispy on the outside, and a little moist on the inside.

I have a pan which makes 8 mini bread loafs and a small sized loaf pan I used to make these. The iciing is a store-bought white icing.


 


For holiday desert, I also baked a double-dozen batch of triple chocolate and fudge chunk cookies, which were a pain while I figured out how to inorporate everything in amounts decent to keep them as cookies and not chocoltae lumps and leave them nice and thick with chocolate.


Chocolate and more chocolate


 


All in all, it was a very tastey Christmas!
