Hi, cant wait to try this...the description reads 'hot sauce butter cream' is that the same as the 'frosting' instructions or something else using actual hot sauce? Thanks Vickie


Yeah, I forgot to mention that. But cannot find a way to go back and edit it now. :( But, - Add hot sauce to the buttercream, a little at a time, until it tastes the way you want. - I have also been thinking about incorporating chopped up salsa into it, but have not tried it yet. FYI, the nutmeg paired with the pepper is what really makes the flavor interesting. My boys love it.
