Gale Gand and Jacquelyn Smola did this one their show Sweet Dreams. I've modified it a bit to suit our tastes but it went over well at a recent birthday party. Do not substitute root beer flavoring for the extract as it doesn't have the same concentrated flavor. Also, when I made this in a 9x13 pan it baked up very high so take that into consideration when you decide which pan(s) to use.
A thick creamy buttery frosting for your cakes. You can make it vanilla, chocolate, orange, lemon or coffee. Its a great topping that you can put some texture into. It looks very effective. Definitely best to have butter out of the fridge for about an hour before required-it's easier to beat butter that is not hard. The butter should not be melted. This recipe should easily ice 12 -16 cupcakes with piped icing tops. This recipe uses Australian Cup measurements-1 cup = 250ml & 1 tablespoon =20ml
This cake was brought to a luncheon by a coworker. It was delicious. Since then, I have been making it, people love it and it is a great, easy way to use up those overripe bananas that sneak up on you.
An easy way to use your fresh rhubarb and strawberries with a box cake mix. Uses a 9 x 13 pan so you'll need a large serving plate to turn it upside down on. Or, you can divide it in two smaller round cake pans.
