Fantabulous!! Thank you for asking!! He is VERY active and thinks my organs are kickboxing targets!
Bettercreme is a whipped icing... a lot of people purchase it from Sam's club in a pail that is already whipped, but I prefer to buy it at a restaurant supply store in liquid form. Honestly, I know it sounds silly, but it tastes SO much better that way, and it's easier to add colors and flavors (like the chocolate). You whip it just like whipping cream. I also like the liquid version because I find the stuff in the pail always seems overwhipped to me. Just my opinion. I used to make that cupcake filling that I posted in the recipe section here, but since I found the liquid Bettercreme I haven't bothered! The Bettercreme is so much easier, and you can add any flavoring to it! One of my favorites is coconut cupcakes with coconut flavoring in the filling, then fill and
ice with it. I just use a large star tip, stick it in there and squeeze until it poops out the top, then make a swirl on top! (Attached pic is the malted cupcakes that have almost started riots at DH's office!)
Oh man, I wasn't planning on doing any baking today... but now... phooey. Someone get out the eggs and oil!!
