Butter Icing for Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Very nice frosting! Tasty, and firms up well enough to transport the next day. It does begin to dry out a bit while frosting, but to soften it back up you can microwave it for a few seconds, or if in stainless bowls put on a low-heat burner for a few seconds (just be careful when handling). Will use again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
Let me preface this review by saying that I am a butter girl. I was very skeptical of and reluctant to use shortening in a frosting recipe, but since my last butter-only frosting was a bit disappointing, I decided to just try it. Wow! This recipe produces an incredibly fluffy, delicious frosting that rivals that from any bakery! I used slightly less sugar (~7 cups) and this made enough to frost 24 cupcakes with about 3 cups left over (in the freezer until next time!). As with another reviewer, I kept "sampling" the frosting because I couldn't believe how good it was! And it's not as sickly sweet and overwhelming as frosting made only with butter. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

Butter Icing for Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
This is a good basic icing. It tasted pretty good, and spread easily until it started to harden a bit. You could fix this by microwaving at 30% for a few seconds, or if using stainless steel bowls, let them sit on a burner on low for a few seconds. Definitely a keeper!

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I wanted to make cupcakes with this recipe, and I followed the directions on the back of the box of Hershey's cocoa exactly. Not a bad flavor(though not chocolaty enough), but the texture was just weird--very spongy and a bit dry. I know I didn't over-bake these, so I don't know what could have gone wrong, but I will not be making this again.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
Handled okay, but too floury/breadlike, and flavorless. If you make these, please make modifications suggested by others. I made these to decorate and give away for Christmas, but I'd be too embarrassed to have others eat them!
