About this Cook
60 yr. old (it's the new 40) mom of 2, grandmom of 4. I love being at home, having the time to cook and to pursue my other million and 1 hobbies.

Sour Cream Frosting
Excellent - all I had in fridge was light sour cream so was forced to try something different. I used orange extract plus the lemon juice to ice a 13x9 mandarin orange cake; also added a bit extra confec. sugar; otherwise it comes out like a thick glaze as others have said. I'm wondering if this icing is a better consistency in cool weather rather than hot; it's January now in the south and the butter was easier to cream rather in the hotter months- therefore it just csme out perfect for cake icing...
