Now here comes the fun part! FROSTING! This is THE best frosting recipe that my mother and grandmother have been using for years. It’s actually from an old Proctor and Gamble baking book that my grandmother still has. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can make to your preference. All you do is start with equal parts unsalted soft butter and crisco. I used 4 tablespoons of each, then added half a bag of confectioners sugar and heavy whipping cream, while mixing them all with my hand mixer. Add the cream in moderation since you do not need that much. I also add a few drops of vanilla since I love the flavor. I bought some gel food coloring at Target to make teal and pink frosting. I prefer the gel coloring because it makes the frosting brighter and you only need a few drops so it lasts forever.
Sunday we did some cleaning, shopping and watched the soccer game (GO USA!) The hubby grilled some bratwursts and cooked up some peppers and onions to make a friggin’ awesome brat sandwich. We also went to a nearby park to spend some time outside with Henry and took a few pictures, I’ll share some of those later because there are so many cute ones. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
