And this week was no different than most...
I had the urge to melt something and
add it to my butter cream frosting.
more sugar added to a buttery sugary frosting.
Did you know that most candy bars
can be melted down and whipped into
your fav butter cream frosting recipe?
Hhhhmmmm,,,now I am wondering what else to melt down???
Nothing will be safe in my kitchen for now 🙂
