Creamy Chocolate Frosting
Great frosting! Instead of opening a can of milk, I took one cup of milk, and reduced it on the stove with 1.5T of instant coffee powder. After reducing the coffee/milk, I strained it, cooled it, followed the recipe, and enjoyed a supurb frosting.

Quick Fudge Icing
Like many others, I had run out of confectioners sugar. For perfect results, follow Tracy's review(10-10-2008). The result was smooth, creamy, and delicious!

Jewish Coffee Cake
Great cake! I took the cake batter and gently folded in 2 cups of blueberries, followed by a light brown sugar topping on the top of cake. I checked the cake after 40 minutes....and decided it needed 5 more minutes, as many other people have suggested. Since I added fruit to the batter, I left it as written, as I wanted a stiffer cake batter. Superb! As with any cake, overworking the batter will develop the gluten in the flour, resulting in a dry cake.
