Whew! What a week! My apologies for not having posted a new food blog review this week, folks. Between a teething toddler, editing deadlines, writing projects, and birthdays to celebrate, I was one maxed-out woman! But don’t worry, I’m recovering very nicely right now with a Blueberry Hard Lemonade, and I can hardly wait to share my latest food blog discovery with you (It’s a good one!).
This week for Sugar Friday I’ve chosen a Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting from the ultimate everyday-cooking source, Savory Sweet Life. I had two birthday cakes to make this past week, and I wanted to make my own icing, so I turned to blogger Alice Currah, who used to bake and decorate wedding and birthday cakes, and knows a thing or two about frosting. Having a buttercream frosting recipe in your baking repertoire is essential because you can always go back to it for any occasion. Alice’s frosting is so good you can slather it on cakes, cupcakes, muffins, slices of pound cake or even sandwiched between two cookies. It’s perfectly sweet (I can’t stand frosting that’s too sweet), has a soft, spreadable texture, and the recipe is adjustable should you wish to make it thicker for piping. Make sure you read the entire post because there are some great tips and info you should know when it comes to frosting.
Alice just recently released her first cookbook, Savory Sweet Life: 100 Simply Delicious Meals for Every Family Occasion, that would make itself at home in your kitchen very nicely. Savory Sweet Life is rich with tummy-filling, heartwarming recipes that everyone will love, like these fluffy buttermilk pancakes. I think it’d be a great use of time to check out the blog while eating buttercream frosting straight from the bowl. Enjoy.
