White Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
This frosting has been something I have been seeking after for YEARS. In elementary school my best friend's mom would bring in cupcakes with this frosting and I was baffled by it. WHAT IS IT?? WHY IS IT SOOO GOOD? To me, it's almost like sturdy, shelf-stable whipped cream. I hate when cupcakes have a TON of frosting and are OVERLY sweet. I made Pumpkin Spice Latte cupcakes and made this recipe using brown sugar instead of white, and only using 3/4 c. This gave it just a slightly sweet, creamy texture and taste, a perfect mapley match to my cupcake! Thank you!

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
Ok. I made this about 6 months ago, and I came back to see if any helpful comments had been made. My tiramisu came out BEAUTIFULLY last time. I made it in a 9 inch springform pan, which is perfect for presentation. I actually put mine in the freezer, and allowed to thaw a bit before serving, becuase I found mine to be a bit runny. I think this was because I did not beat the whip cream enough? Mascarpone cheese can be found in the deli section with all the specialty cheeses. It's a bit on the expensive side, but totally worth it. If you're not into alcohol, here's what I used: they actually have Kahlua flavored coffee in tiny packets at Wal-Mart. This will give you that great taste without the alcohol. I used the entire package and made a little over 2 cups of super strong coffee. I bought the lady fingers at Kroger (we don't have Trader Joes anywhere near here). They were in the Italian foods section, and I bought two packages. These ladyfingers came with a little bit of an icing/sugar coating on top. I dipped and flipped the lady fingers in the coffee, and they were saturated as if you dipped an oreo in milk. It depends on how much you want that coffee taste. I just dipped enough to get both sides covered, and then removed it. Others had suggested using a bit less sugar, so I will try that this time. I'm also going to use ramikans (sp?) to make little individual tiramisus. Have fun with this recipe, it's a crowd pleaser, they are sure to be impressed!
