Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream cheese frosting that looks as good as it tastes. Cream cheese frosting is delicious. End of story. Okay, maybe not quite the end of the story. While we wholeheartedly support delicious ugly food here at Taste Before Beauty, we recognize that beautiful food is good for the mouth and the eyes. I wanted to create a cream cheese frosting that is not only delicious but is the perfect topping for any delicious treat…

Easy Chocolate Glaze

Easy Chocolate Glaze

Easy, delicious, and GORGEOUS! Could a glaze this beautiful be this easy? Absolutely! This chocolate glaze is my favorite! It is not so sweet that it overwhelms, and complements the existing flavor of your treat nicely. My favorite thing about this glaze is that it balances your baked goods, rather than taking over and stealing the show. If placed in the fridge, the glaze will turn dull and matte, but bringing it back to…

Cream Cheese Whipped Cream

Cream Cheese Whipped Cream

A faultless, stabilized multitasker. It’s a perfect filling and the most versatile “frosting” in my repertoire. The words “stabilized whipped cream” always sound a little scary to me.

I like to use whipped cream as a topping, frosting, or layer in many desserts, but was frustrated with its inability to last longer than an hour or two…

After trying a few of the different varieties, I decided to dig in deep to chocolate buttercream frosting…

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Don’t tell anyone, but I always lick the beaters when I make this creamy vanilla buttercream. Great for birthday cakes, wedding cakes, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, and sugar cookies. I’m a huge believer that every kitchen tool you own should serve multiple purposes (or be used A LOT for its specific purpose). I don’t have anything in my kitchen that is only used for one thing because it wastes valuable space. I believe the…

Best Easy Chocolate Mousse

Best Easy Chocolate Mousse

This mousse is a showstopper! Delightfully light, perfectly smooth, and chocolatey, you’ll find any excuse to make this often. I love a good chocolate mousse. I’ve tried so many at restaurants and made quite a few myself. I’ve found that there is a fine line between too bitter, too sweet, too rich, too bland. I wanted to be able to make a chocolate mousse full of flavor that hits the spot, without the heart-racing rush…
