Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
My long search is over! I love this frosting. It's absolutely perfect, and if you've ever had birthday cakes from Chinese bakeries, THIS is identical to the frosting on those cakes. It's light, and not too sweet. I will never use butter frosting for my white cakes ever again.

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I like these waffles, but I found them a bit bland and dense. So, I added 3 tsp of vanilla extract, and 3 to 4 Tbs of white sugar, and 2 cups of milk . The extra milk made the waffles less dense and lighter, and increased the number of waffles from 5 to 8, perfect for a family of 4 (2 waffles each). You can also make them ahead and freeze them so you can eat them whenever you want by reheating in the toaster. They're really good for a quick breakfast when you're in a hurry. Just toast, and take it with you because it's already sweet!! I also found that by adding extra sugar, they're sweet enough that you don't need as much syrup or you can eat them as is!!

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
These are so easy, relatively expensive, and make perfect gifts for friends and acquaintances. I gave some to my supervisors at work, and they absolutely loved them! I prefer using red/white peppermint candy cane rather than the green/red/white ones. Oddly enough, I could only find them at Walmart.

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I think the flavor was good, although I decreased the amount of sugar to 1 cup because we're not big on sweetness. The flavor turned out to be perfect because, don't forget, your icing will be sweet too! I also added the extra 1/2 cup of milk as recommended by other reviewers. However, the cake came out really dense. Other reviewers stated they got light and fluffy results. I will try this recipe again but with different manipulated variables next time, perhaps without the extra 1/2 cup of milk.
