Here Is A Tip Straight From My Great Grandmother

Like all grandmothers, my great grandma loved to spoil us!  She was always making special treats.  Everything from snicker-doodle cookies to homemade cakes, we ate it all.  As she was cooking up these treats for us, she would talk about the ingredients and pass along her tried and true tips.

One of my favorite great grandmother tips is: Use a tablespoon when frosting a cake.  The frosting goes on quickly and smoothly.  There is also less chance you will tear the cake.  Try it, you'll like it!


  1. If you are using frosting from the can. You can also heat up the spoon under hot water and it spreads easy that way to.
