Calling RuthWells and others!


I've actually had success with the Lemon Buttercream! Yay!


I'm making cupcakes for a baby shower on Sunday and am determined to try a vanilla or lemon cake from Whimsical Bakehouse, rather than falling back on an old standard. Which recipe would you recommend?

Way to go, Canuck!  Was this your first buttercream?  Remind me whether it's a cooked-sugar-syrup recipe (am at work and can't reference the book).


As far as cupcakes, I would recommend the vanilla cupcake recipe from the book (NOT just a cake recipe baked in a cupcake pan).  The levenings are adjusted for nicely domed cupcakes.  That being said, all of the butter cake recipes are winners.  Have fun, and don't forget to share pix with us!

Thanks Ruth! No, not my first buttercream with cooked syrup but the first successful one--and I had my doubts at many points during the process. I love lemon so I added a whole recipe of the lemon curd instead of about the 2/3 required. It is delish.


I will try the cupcakes and add a bit of lemon to them too.


Cannot post pics since I don't have a digital camera, but I will let you know how it goes.

Ok, that's it, you just pushed me over the edge.  The book is on its way from Indigo, along with Jesse Cook's new CD.  We're not even into November double-digits yet, and this month's kitchen indulgence/cookbook budget is already blown :(

You know you wanted it...


I bought it last month and haven't had a chance to try anything until today. It does look good, particularly for kids, and the lemon buttercream has been tempting me all morning. You'll love it.

I did...I do...as well as a bunch of others.  Cookbooks, I want more cookbooks!
