Fluffy Crusting Buttercream

Posted by cbrosado This is a foolproof, very light and fluffy, smooth buttercream. It almost has a whipped icing texture, but holds it's form. I have never had to, but it can be made stiffer by adding powdered sugar or corn starch. It spreads super easy and crusts over nicely. This is definitely my favorite "go to" recipe. It is an all shortening recipe, but doesn't taste "greasy". It is not too sweet and the taste is amazing! It does not need to be refrigerated because the high sugar content acts as a preservative.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Posted by cbrosado This is a recipe that I came up with by taking my favorite pieces of other recipes. It bakes all the way through, so you won't have a cookie cake that is raw in the center. I have been told it is the best anyone has ever tasted and people prefer it over the super thin cookie cakes from local specialty stores. This also makes superb cookies...I have noticed that the temperature of your kitchen will affect how the cookie version turns out. I live in Texas, so in the Summer even with the air conditioning cranked up, it can still get pretty warm... read more

German Chocolate Scratch Cake w/Icing

Posted by cbrosado This was my grandmother's recipe. It is a super moist scratch cake that is not too dense. It has a very nice texture and has always been a family favorite. I like this cake so much, that I have often thought of leaving out the cocoa to see how it stands up as a vanilla scratch cake. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Strawberry NFSC

Posted by Lovelyladylibra So I decided to not be stingy like I did with my red velvet cookie recipe and share. :) This recipe (like all my new recipes) are made with the NFSC as a base. II love the NFSC recipe its so versatile. These cookies are made with real strawberries not powered strawberry drink (yuck) nor milk syrup (double yuck). Now when I made these I used my juicer because I don't have a puree thingy. Since the berries were cold it basically came out like pureed strawberries (or maybe cause my juicer is crappy lol). If your pureeing your berries just use... read more

Moravian Spice Cake

Posted by jgifford I found this in a collection of Civil War era recipes. I've tweaked it a little since the original recipe produced a very heavy, dense cake. It works well for cupcakes also and the brown sugar makes for a smooth, lightly-crusted top which is perfect for decorating. The taste is not unusually strong, so I would suggest using a light frosting. Ingredients: AmountIngredient1 1/2 cupbrown sugar1/2 cupoil2 eggs1 1/2 cupsour milk1/2 cupwater - optional1/2 tsp baking soda dissolved in the milk3 cupsAP flour1 tspbaking powder2 tspcinnamon1 tspginger1/2... read more
