The other night I was baking a cake for a dinner with my future in-laws and my parents. I had made a chocolate cake and was preparing a butter cream frosting. I love plain vanilla butter cream frosting, but for some reason I just felt like the cake needed something a little extra. I decided to add in a big scoop of cookie butter to the frosting. The results were fantastic! And it got me thinking how a little change like that can make a big difference in easy recipes. Here are three ideas for spicing up your frosting.Cookie butter frosting!
