Chocolate Cream Pudding
Way too much sugar. That's saying a lot coming from me, as I have a serious sweet tooth. Next time, I think I'll half the sugar and hope that it turns out better. The texture is great.

Best Buttercream Frosting
Best Frosting Ever. I'm the type of person who usually scrapes all the frosting off of cakes and cupcakes because I just don't like most frostings. This recipe is the correct sweetness for me. It is more work than other recipes, but so worth it. I followed another reviewers advice and made a roux as the first step instead. That basically means I added a little butter to it. It's easy: Melt a little butter - (about the same amount as the flour, or even a little less), slowly add in the flour while you stir with whisk. This will kind of form a ball. Then SLOWLY add in the milk, while stirring constantly. I would describe the final state of the roux as slightly thicker than what you'd expect for a frosting. Then follow the recipe as described. Beating the sugar and butter together will take a good 15 minutes. But that's enough time for the roux to go down to a reasonable temp, so it's all good. I halved it and still had twice as much frosting as I needed to cover two dozen cupcakes. I threw the rest in the freezer. Not sure if that was a good idea or not. I'll find out later.
