August 13, 2013

The Dollop Book of Frosting: Sweet and Savory Icings, Spreads, Meringues, and Ganaches for Dessert and Beyond is hitting homes soon NOW. Have you gotten your copy yet? If so or if not, I’m going to break down my top 10 favorite frosting recipes from my delectable cookbook of frosting goodness. I need to first preface this list though by saying that all of the recipes are wonderful (clearly) and choosing favorites is a bit like choosing your favorite child (assuming all of your children are sweet). My Top 10 Favorite Dollop Book of Frosting Recipes
  1. Chocolate Buttercream (pg. 21). This chocolate buttercream was one of the first frostings I ever created about five years ago when I first ventured onto the cupcake scene. My goal was to create a fudgy chocolate frosting reminiscent of the dark half of those soft half-moon cookies I used to devour as a child. By adding a secret ingredient I was able to do just that. And now, for the first time ever I’m divulging my secret to the perfect chocolate buttercream (when you buy the book and turn to page 21).
  2. Peanut Butter Buttercream (pg. 36). This frosting has and always will be my standby/first in command/absolute favorite. Anytime someone asks me what my favorite cupcake is I immediately reply, “anything with peanut butter frosting”. I promise you (and I am not a willy-nilly promisor) that this will be the BEST peanut butter frosting you will ever sink your teeth into.
  3. Raspberry Buttercream (pg. 51). Why is this frosting one of my favorites? Because I show you how to put it on spinach. Flip to page 53. Yup, Spinach “Salad” with raspberry frosting and cocoa almonds is happening. Dinner party, anyone?
  4. Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Frosting (pg. 73). As summer comes to a close, pumpkin season will begin to take hold.With this creamy delicious frosting recipe I show you how to turn your pumpkin carving parties into Pumpkin Pizza (pg. 75) decorating parties. This is what they call “dessert, re-imagined”.
  5. Gingersnap Stout Frosting (pg. 84). I’ve told you about this one before but I’m not sure I really truly expressed how amazingly tasty this frosting is. By taking buttercream, adding crushed gingersnaps, and a few pours of a dark craft stout, we turn frosting into not just a cake topper, but also an actual pie filling. Frosting pie with beer? YES, please.
This is a Top 10 list but I’ve only listed 5 recipes. Don't worry, your eyes are not deceiving you. The truth is-as I'm writing this list I have received word that The Dollop Book of Frosting is sitting on my dad’s doorstep right now and I’m just dying to lay my hands on it for the first time. So for now I’ll give you a moment to order your copy of The Dollop Book of Frosting: Sweet and Savory Icings, Spreads, Meringues, and Ganaches for Dessert and Beyond and when I return, I will round up my final Top 5 favorite Dollop Book of Frosting recipes.
