Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
I was surprised at how disappointing this frosting turned out. I doubled the recipe and used approximately 5 1/2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of unsalted butter. It was too buttery and sweet. I added 1T lemon juice which helped a little. It was very easy to spread (I used white cake recipe from this site) though and tasted okay. But there are other recipes which are better than this.

Cookies and Peppermint Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Did the night before my son's 11th birthday party but made some changes. I used one box of reduced fat oreos for the crust so it was 1" thick. Yum. I couldn't find chocolate nillas or chocolate grahams which would have been good. I used cookies and cream and 1.5 jars hershey's special recipe fudge sauce. Sprinkled oreos on the top. Everyone loved it and it was very easy and inexpensive. Next time I would use a high end fudge sauce or make a chocolate ganache for the filling to dress it up a bit and also cookies which are less sweet. Other than that, a total winner.
