Good evening. Does anyone here shop at Wegmans? There are many here in western New York NW PA. They sell "Ultimate cake" in white and chocolate flavors. The employee said the frosting is European butter cream. OH man!@@@! It is delicious. Wondering if anyone has tried it and if so, do you know of a comparable recipe?? The mini cakes sell for $6. TIA!

French Buttercream Frosting

This buttercream is great for icing cakes, and writing on them. It gets hard when refrigerated, so you have to let it come to room temperature before serving. You cannot make flowers with this recipe. I use this recipe every time I make birthday cakes for my family.

This is very similar to all the buttercreams I've been looking at lately.

It looks like (after googling) that the European contains eggs. Check this out: http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=53598.0

oh wow. I could go really wild with those variations! But also the cake itsself was exceptionally moist. Not dry at all. Do you have a favorite white cake?

White cake is hard. I made the one that goes with Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Frosting. That whole cake is one of my faves. But the cake itself is very tasty.

Marianne I read your post on the pickled blueberries. Did you ever find some cool recipes for that? sounds tempting. Your review makes me want to try it and I am NOT a canner either. I do it with my mom in law

I was the only one who really loved it. I just plopped the blueberries on top of chevre and ate it just as something to have with my wine while fixing dinner. They are very good, though. I think that would actually be good as a topping on ice cream.

I love Wegman's - I wish we had one out West - the only time I get to go is when I visit the East!

yeah...ok! But some places are the best in the west. I bet you could brag... What are your grocery stores like?

I was just looking at your blog about your daughter. When my 41-year-old daughter was promoted from middle school to high school, she was the ONLY one to wear a black dress. Oh, my. She was a fun one! But she looked spectacular.

Wegmans is such an awesome store! Everytime we go to Ithaca, we have to stop at Wegmans. I spend hours in there and we usually end up eating lunch or dinner at the prepared Chinese takeout inside the store.

Rachel is very quiet and is slow to make friends. Her cousins same age absolutely love her. But I was very much that way. So, I am just proud that she tried and did go to homecoming. She looked like a "doll". Marianne, Your granddaughters are beautiful

I tried the Ultimate White Cake, and I've had their Ultimate Chocolate Cake and they are both delish! I'd love to be able to make those cakes. Their fruit tarts are awesome too. I'll keep tabs on this post to see some good recipes
