Banana Cake VI
This is my second time making this recipe and both times it has been really good! I followed the recipe exactly, pan size, but I found that the bake times weren't enough and had to bake it an extra 20 mins in the oven. Not sure if it's my oven? I also added less sugar to the icing, I always find icing recipes are way too sweet so I always add way less sugar than the recipe calls for. I also add crushed pecans!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
Super delicious! I made this icing for chocolate buttermilk cupcakes and it was super fantastic! The only suggestions I would make is to sift the sugar so that it doesn't make the frosting all clumpy. I also only added 1 cup of sugar but only because I don't like frosting that is too sweet. I would suggest to just add enough sugar that suits your taste. If you want a nice thick frosting for piping, add a tablespoon of milk first and then slowly add more milk by the teaspoon until you get the consistency that you like. The more milk you add, the more watery it'll be.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III
These are FABULOUS! I followed the advice of other reviewers and added only 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. I set my oven for 10 mins at 350 but once it gave me that 1 min warning, I gave it a few seconds and took them out, and let them cool down a bit. They were perfect, still really soft. I used roasted and salted macadamia nuts, so I would omit the salt next time. If you're not huge on the almond extract, I would either substitute it for the vanilla extract or maybe 1/4 of a tsp instead, I found the almond extract a tad much, just a tad.
