My sister got this buttercream frosting off the box of a Sprinkles Cupcake mix, made famous by Oprah. My sister said this was amazing. Update: I have finally gotten around to making this myself. I will say, that I don't like my desserts overly sweet and. though this was very good, I think I would probably decrease the amount of sugar for my personal taste. I'm glad everyone else has liked it as-is, though. :)
I made this recipe after falling in love with Coldstone and Carvel's Cake Batter Ice Cream.
I recommend using Splenda instead of sugar since there is sugar in the cake mix.
You can use 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract if you please. You can also use 3/4 cup of cake mix.
THIS RECIPE IS TO USE WITH AN ICE CREAM MAKER (MINE IS BY CUISINART)
*Updated 3/8 with changes based on making the recipe* These are amazing. This version is rich and cream and buttery and melt-in-your mouth good. I would take one of these over a box of the commercial ones any day.
These comments are from their cookbook:
"At Magnolia we decided to make our cake not quite a traditional yellow cake or a traditional sponge cake, given the use of whole eggs in our recipe. We're sure you'll agree this recipe is moist, delicious and makes a beautiful layer cake or cupcakes for birthdays or any celebration. Frost with pink buttercream icing and lots of colored sprinkles as we do, and feel as though you're at your seventh birthday party all over again!"
This recipe is a re-creation of the amazing and decadent Slutty Brownies from the blog What’s Gaby Cooking (http://whatsgabycooking.com), which were inspired by The Londoner blog (http://www.thelondoner.me). But what makes them different--ahem--"sluttier”? I’ve amped up the recipe with a secret layer of caramel plus salted caramel on top. How’s that for filthy!
This is an easy to make and yummy truffle. You can add different flavorings to make them uniquely yours! Great for gift giving - Melt in your mouth!! My kids and I do Christmas baskets full of nothing but homemade goodies - this is one of the favorites! (My cooking time is actual time "assembling" the truffles) Servings are approx - depends on how many you give to each person and how many you eat while making them :-) I usually get about 50 from each batch.
This is a delightful and refreshing dessert. I found a recipe 15 years ago that is similar to mine, but I modified it to have a very good blend between the lime juice and sugar. My crust enhances the taste of the cheesecake.
