Cream Cheese Frosting II
EASY EASY EASY! And, soooooo yummy. I made this for a white texas sheet cake. I'm concerned it may be too sweet on top of sweet but I'll find out at my party this afternoon. Make sure your cream cheese and butter are both at room temperature. It creams so much easier. It came out light fluffy and smooth. No lumps. Easy Peasy!

Texas Sheet Cake V
The cake itself was a cinch but the frosting, OMG!!! I couldn't figure out what I did wrong. It was WAY too thick. It was one big ball. In fact, I made it twice. The second time was a little better then the first so I followed what a previous reviewer had said and frosted the cake on the oven rack with the warm oven open. It was a little scary, I thought I'd pull the cake apart. But, as it warmed, it ended up spreading nicely. It looks yummy. We'll see what my party has to say tomorrow!

Special Buttercream Frosting
I'm a beginner at baking. I made it for my little girls 2nd birthday cupcakes. This was super easy and everybody raved about how good it was! I did tweak it a bit. 1/2 shortening 1/2 butter and 2/3 heavy cream and 1/3 sweetened condensed milk. I just made it for a second time for my big daughter's 7th birthday. I'll let you know how people like it.
