About this Cook
I love to bake and decorate cakes. Always looking for new recipes to try, tho it's tough having to adjust for high altitude.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, cookies, breads.
My cooking triumphs
My flower basket cake and also creating the best yellow cake my fiance has ever had.
My cooking tragedies
A chocolate ganache recipe I tried went horribly wrong and completely separated. I wanted to cry.

Buttercream Icing
Thank god I found this recipe! I had a crisis with another buttercream icing (it was melting when out of the fridge for too long!) and needed a quick substitute. I, too, used all butter in this and added a splash more of vanilla, and it turned out great. I also omitted one cup of powdered sugar, it was borderline too sweet with just 3, which is why I only gave it 4 stars.
