Salt water taffy Making taffy is super fun. I will warn you though, your arms will get quite the workout. Especially if you cook it to about 265. Mine got really tough after a few minutes and by the end of the 20 minutes of stretching I was starting to sweat and my arms were starting to shake. If the stretching part seems intimidating, don't let it! Salt water taffyYields approx. 50 pieces/1.5 poundsadapted from here. Prepare a heat safe dish by lightly buttering it. In a saucepan, sift together sugar and cornstarch. When cool enough to handle, grease hands and pull the warm candy with fingertips, pulling out to about 12 inches at first. p.s. the color of the taffy was identical to this pretty nail polish so i had to put them side by side.

Glorious Treats Classic Buttercream Frosting Recipe When I used to bake and decorate wedding and birthday cakes, I would use different types of frosting depending on who was eating the cake. Most wedding cakes were frosted in egg based recipes such as Italian or French meringue but for children’s cakes or cupcakes I usually frost cakes in American buttercream frosting. Made with powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk, this is a basic, easy recipe for classic vanilla buttercream frosting. It’s important to note that when preparing a batch of frosting you adjust the consistency of the buttercream for what you plan on using it for. This recipe is very forgiving. If you’re looking for a classic vanilla buttercream recipe, look no further. **I am also soliciting cake tutorial requests – just leave them in the comment section below** * Many of you have asked about how much frosting you need to make for cakes and cupcakes. **Someone emailed me wanting to know what tool I use to sift the powdered sugar.

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pop-tarts | The Baker Chick As I’ve mentioned before, my Mom didn’t let us have junk food in the house. And I mean EVER. I think once we were allowed Cinnamon Toast Crunch to have as dessert but that’s pretty much it. In hindsight, I’m so thankful for her diligence, but at the time I was pretty bummed about it. I remember diving for the junk food every time I was at a friend’s house to the point of probably looking underfed. All these years later, I still haven’t forgotten how good those Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pop-tarts were. These pop-tarts are widely adaptable, easy, and so satisfying. Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pop-tarts Ingredients 1 recipe pie crust 1/2 cup (3 3/4 ounces) brown sugar 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, to taste 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour 1 large egg, to brush on pastry before filling Instructions If the dough has been chilled, remove it from the refrigerator and allow it to soften and become workable, about 15 to 30 minutes.
