Creme Filling I
If you have a grainy texture from the normal sugar try using beverage sugar instead. Beverage sugar falls somewhere between regular and powdered sugar in texture. This is very similar to the "buttercream" recipe you might learn in a cake decorating class. Tastes alright, but pales in comparison to fillings/frostings made with real dairy products. Still, it does in a pinch, especially if your cake/donut/pastry can't be refrigerated!

Blueberry Peach Muffins
These muffins were excellent! I did, however, make some adjustments that led to my 5-Star rating. I took the advice of other reviewers and added the cinnamon and nutmeg in with the other dry ingredients (omitting the extra sugar and butter altogether). I also added in 1 tsp. of vanilla. Some reviews mentioned that the muffins came out too heavy, so I also added in a couple dollops of sour cream. The result was a moist muffin, substantial but not too dry or dense.
