Wedding Cake Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
EXCELLENT RECIPE! I cut this in 1/2 all the time to ice a sheet cake (at home). Anyone that thinks it's greasy-you did not follow instructions. By beating the shortening, water, flavoring and 1/2 sugar, u are incorporating the water/moisture into the shortening, which lightens it. If you don't follow that step (yes, mixing about 10 min prior to adding the rest of the sugar) it will leave a film/be heavy tasting. I did substitute the following: 1/2 C shortening, 1/2 C unsalted butter to my version. FANTASTIC flavor! Have a cake baking right now my daughter made just to have the frosting again!

Best No-Bake Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This is a very simple very good quick no bake cheesecake. I also used a ready made pie shell, however, I used 1 inner package of dream whip which I prepared myself (and added 2 tbls of powdered sugar and 1 tbls vanilla to) and threw that in the freezer INSTEAD of a pint of whipping cream. While that was chilling, I whipped 2 room temperature packages of light cream cheese with 1/3 cup of powdered sugar and 1 tbls vanilla and the lemon juice. The key is to really whip the cream cheese smooth before adding the whip cream. This set up perfectly, was amazingly thick and creamy and had great flavor. My daughter LOVED it!
