here it is if you are feeling brave...
Saucy's Never-Fail Frosting
1 cup butter at room temperature*
1 cup vegetable shortening at room temperature (ie. Crisco)
1 teaspoon white vanilla (ie. Wilton)
4 cups confectioners/icing sugar2 tablespoons whipping cream
Best made in a stand mixer.
Cream together the butter and shortening thoroughly. Add the sugar, one cup at a time until blended. Beat in the vanilla as you go. When the sugar is completely beaten in, make sure the sides of the bowl are scraped down. Add the whipping cream, beating at the highest speed until super fluffy, about one minute. Use immediately. Store covered in refrigerator when not in use.
Saucy and Loopy schooled me in cupcake class 101. Let's just say professional production line. These gals are pros.
Here are a few of our masterpieces.

Every Wednesday morning The Sprout and I look forward to music class. We love the songs but the lollipop drum is The Sprouts favorite. It took us a while but he likes the shakers now too.
The Sprout got a hint of a shiner during his latest drum session with Yoda. It's OK Yoda the bump was gone just in time for out trip to Texas.
(more information coming soon...)
We also had a grand time shopping at The Galleria.
Sophie (The Sprout's Giraffe) made a new friend she can't wait to tell you about.
