Happy Birthday Jill!
A friend of mine had a big birthday this year and this was the cake (and matching cupcakes).
The cake is chocolate with a peanut butter buttercream (yum! yum! yum!). Here is the recipe I came up with:
Peanut Butter Buttercream
- 2 1/2 cups peanut butter
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 stick Crisco
- 2 lbs. powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup +/- milk or cream
- Mix together butter and Crisco until creamy, add peanut butter and mix well.
- Add powdered sugar a little at a time, alternating with milk until you reach desired consistency.
