Alfredo Sauce
This is so far from real Alfredo sauce it is crazy. You need to make a rue first, 3 tbsp butter same flower. Also gruyere cheese is needed and no garlic.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
I enjoy the flavor of this frosting although I added more lemon zest and cut the sugar by a cup. The extra sugar would make the frosting stiffer, but I wanted a less sweet frosting. I tried it on lemon cupcakes, next time I am going to try a full cake.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting
I followed others suggestions and used the half butter and half Crisco butter flavored. I also only used 6 cups sugar. I beat the frosting at high for 10 mins. It was perfect. Great taste and firmness.
