Vanilla Buttercream

Chocolate Cake with Cheesecake Center – Day two – Vanilla Bean Buttercream I am getting good at making traditional buttercream frosting with whole eggs.

Seven Minute Frosting

Seven Minute Frosting - Better than seven minutes in heaven! from #dietersdownfall.com

Marshmallow Roulade – Day Two – Seven Minute Frosting I have a love/hate relationship with seven minute frosting. I LOVE to eat it, and I hate to make it… You see, previously when I’ve made it, the frosting turned out gritty because the sugar didn’t completely dissolve while I was making it. It turns out […]

Marshmallow Roulade – Day One – Homemade Marshmallows I have a confession to make. I have had homemade marshmallows on my bucket list for at least 3 years! I finally decided to conquer my fear and just go for it! This week marks my 1 year blog birthday here at Dieter’s Downfall, so I wanted […]

Orange and Ginger infused Carrot Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting with Bunny Macarons I loved this cake! Loved.

Easter Carrot Cake – Day One – Orange infused Cream Cheese Frosting I have mixed feelings about this next round of recipes.

Peanut Butter Pudding Pie with Brownies – Day Two – Peanut Butter Brownies Who can resist fudgy brownies with a peanut butter swirl? I sure can’t, that’s for sure. These brownies (and the peanut butter cookies) totally sabotaged any healthy eating this past week. I seriously had brownies for breakfast over the weekend… Sigh… However, […]
