Strawberry Cake and Frosting I
First off let me say that although this recipe gets rave reviews I was still very shocked at the wonderful flavor never having had a fresh strawberry cake not made from a mix. Which the strawberry cake mixes are just awful. Now on to my review. I am a recent graduate of culinary school in Baking and Pastry So I am used to making icings. However I paid close attention to the hints given for this icing as most said that it was to runny. I actually made this for a cake ordered for a customer who wanted it for a birthday cake. So for the icing I followed the hint and drained the strawberrys I also pureeed them through a thin strainer with an old fashion mashed potato masher. I then drained the puree somewhat on paper towels. This did leave a need for moisture which I filled with a few tbls of both water and strawberry juice. You dont need to drain but I wanted to be able to control the amount of moisture eventually adding a few tbls of milk as well to give it a creamy texture. I believe the recipe calls for 4 3/4 cps of powder sugar. I actually used almost a 2 lb bag. which was a little over 7 cups. With the addition of the liquid it turned out great of course this made a cup or so more icing then needed. I did end up with a flat icing which is what I was looking for.

This is a wonderful recipe. I have made it over 5 times in 2 weeks since finding it here. Everyone loved these cookies. Even my husband who never eats sweets said they were awesome. I did change it a bit though added a little more cream cheese and vanilla and ajusted for flour. Thanks for sharing this one is added to my recipe book.

Butter Icing for Cookies
I was very happy with this recipe. I have made it several times since I first printed it out. I made a batch of Cookie Press Butter spritz cookie and a regular batch of sugar cookie and used it on both. I go to a school for culinary arts specializing in Baking and Pastry Arts. I took them in to school and not only did the students like them. So did the chef instructors. Great recipe. This one is added to my personal recipe book. Thanks for sharing.
