Caramel Liqueur
I took another reviewer's method and used the oven instead of boiling the mixture in a can. The top layer of the milk did nearly burn after an hour, but it was easily removed. I used 1/4 rum for one can of milk to adjust it to my tastes...IT'S SO GOOD. I hesitated to use the original method of browning the milk simply because the can has a label saying 'Do Not Heat in Can.' I've been told this pertains to using on a fire, but it was easier and FASTER to go with the oven method anyway. I do not like the taste of alcohol, so add the rum slowly until you have the taste you want. The full amount would be too much for 'light' drinkers.

Banana Muffins I
These tasted salty, and the texture was strange. Light, with lots of pockets of air, not dense at all like a muffin usually is. They were moist, but that's all that I could say that was good about them. I almost trashed them, but I know people who'll eat anything. I did tear up the recipe sheet and throw that away. The simple ingredients drew me to this one, but I think muffins really need butter/margarine. Thanks but I'll keep on looking.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting
This is actually Wilton's Extra Special Buttercream Icing. I made this recipe to decorate a cake, and then found it on Wilton's site, where the exact recipe is listed, also stating that it has to be refrigerated always. That ended up being such a bummer, because I didn't want a frosting that required refrigeration. I followed others advice and used 5 cups of sugar instead of 8--it was definitely a lot better than when I made it the first time, because I hate frosting that is sickly sweet. This was easy to decorate with, but since it's the type that needs refrigeration I won't be making it again.
