Mardi Gras King Cake Scones

Last week, without thinking, I posted three dinner recipes in a row. Usually, I try to break things up a bit with a salad or dessert or some other post. So this weekend, I thought I’d make more “fun” things!

Best Vanilla Buttercream, American Style

Best American buttercream - vanilla

If you saw my Best Chocolate Cupcakes the other day, you probably got a peek at this Vanilla Buttercream. It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? And you may have scrolled down the page until you saw my “Pinterest Fail” using the same buttercream recipe. *Sighs*

Raspberry Filled Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream

These are luscious in the best possible way! Perfect with pink sprinkles for Valentines, but just as good anytime!!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is often thought of as the day we celebrate our sweetheart. Flowers, chocolate, cards and cupcakes are all appropriate. Yeah, see how I worked that Cupcake in? Slick, huh? In my defense, this is a Raspberry Filled Cupcake topped with Carlee’s White Chocolate Buttercream. It’s not to be missed.

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread

This Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread has become a new fave at our house - maybe at yours, too?

I love that Quick Breads just seem to scream “good home cooking” don’t you? They’re great for all kinds of occasions: when company is dropping by, for brunch, or maybe to take to the office or to a family who needs a bit of a boost. This would make anyone feel better, at least while they’re eating it!

Swiss Meringue Frosting

When I saw Jennifer Shae of Trophy Cupcakes use this Swiss Meringue on her S’more Cupcakes on Martha Stewart, I wasn’t taking any issue that she called this “Marshmallow Frosting.” I was more interested that it toasted so beautifully and tastes soooo good!

Ermine Buttercream Frosting, Flour Based

Very simple and so good - perfect for fall (or anytime!!)

There are several Buttercream Frostings, and over the years they’ve been divided into different camps. One that has increased in popularity recently is not very well-known, a flour based buttercream, sometimes called Boiled Flour Frosting, Pudding Based or Ermine Frosting.

The Best Bailey’s Frosting – That really tastes like Bailey’s is in it.

I had so much fun experimenting with Bailey’s frosting – I think I was covered with frosting by the time I was done. I seriously wanted a Bailey’s frosting that actually tasted of Bailey’s and here it is…and it has a generous full cup of Bailey’s!

Boston Cream Pie

Oh my gosh - that custard filling!!

For years I made Boston Cream Pie on Valentine’s Day for my kids. I loved putting little chocolate hearts around the edge of the cake and I loved that it had such a gorgeous old fashioned look with the glaze dripping down and the custard peeping out. It reminded me of those cakes that Yogi Bear stole along with the Pahnicanic baskets.
