Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
This frosting tastes great. I did use 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter because I wanted the frosting to hold its shape and look great as I was giving cupcakes as Valentine's Day gifts. It looked fantastic. The taste was very good but yes, it was a little 'waxy' because of the shortening. So, if you don't need the frosting to hold its shape and look great, use butter and it will taste slightly better. But with shortening it will taste slightly waxy but excellent taste anyway and look great. One more thing - I used only 3 cups of sugar. I got loads of compliments on this frosting so I will definitely be using this recipe in the future.

Basic Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I couldn't find my true and trusted cheesecake recipe so went searching for another. I came across this recipe and decided to try it. With some slight changes I made this cheesecake and it was amazing! My son who loves cheesecake (it was for his birthday) and has eaten many in his life said it was the best one he's ever tasted. And other members of the family who don't even like cheesecake, loved it. I did not use any walnuts. For the filling I used non-fat sour cream and low fat cream cheese. I put a cherry topping on top and I made 1 1/2 times the crust (we love crust!). I put the cheesecake in a waterbath and after it was done in the oven, I let it sit for about 45 minutes before opening the door. There were no cracks in the cheesecake. This cheesecake was unbelievably good. I highly recommend this recipe.
