Lemon Poppy Seed Biscotti

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
So I didn't have almonds in the house, I substituted them with pecans and it still turned out great, I also increased the lemon zest to 1.5 tbsp, the lemon extract to 1.5 tsp, and decreased the the poppy seeds to 2 tbsp. I also increased the baking time after slicing because they were not crispy enough, I baked them for 15 minutes on one side, 10 minutes on the other and now they taste perfect!

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
The frosting tasted extraordinary, I'm only giving it 4 stars because it is tricky to get it to behave. The first time I made it I followed the reviews advice and added cornstarch, I then turned up the heat, stirring constantly, cooled it, and it turned out perfectly, the second time I tried it without the turning up the heat as high and the frosting did not solidfy at all, but it ended up being even more delicious then the first time. I ended scooping out the coconut/peacans and spreading it around the top of the layers, and then pouring the syrup all over the cake. I let it sit in the fridge for a while, took it out, and used a paper towel to wip up the excess liquid that had leaked out of the cake, and then I melted some chocolate chips in the microwave in a plastic bag, cut off the corner of the bag, and drizzled chocolate all over the top, and using a knife, spread the chocolate all over the sides. The effect was incredibly, the chocolate locked the moisture in the cake and it tasted even better than the first time, you can see pictures of this second attempt under my photos. also I suggest toasting the peacans and coconut before hand

Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I've made it several times now, it always turns out fantastic. To make life easier I just warm the milk in the microwave, mix all the wet ingredients together, mix all the dry ingredients together, and then combine the two in my bread machine. I find to make the cake look extra spectacular, I twist the two roles of dough together, join the ends so I have one twisted loop, and let it rise, it always comes out of the oven looking fantastic! Also for the filling I like to use a cream cheese based one, I just mix some powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk with 8oz of cream cheese and spread that on the dough before I role it up!
