Today is Mrs. Magill’s birthday. Since I’m working at home today, I thought I’d make her a cake. Her favorite: boxed Yellow cake with canned frosting. I went to the cupboard to get the mix and canned frosting, and discovered that it’s been a bit longer than I had thought since we’d bought frosting… at least since she’d started dieting, as the only frosting we had expired last year.
I figure that botulism would not be the best birthday gift… ever.
“Wait!” I said to myself, “she likes cup cakes with granache on them.” I looked in the fridge and saw no heavy cream. We just have half & half. Can I make granache out of half & half? (hint: she does not like buttercream frosting.)
I’ve thought that maybe I could use the half & half and butter to increase the fat content. Am I fooling myself?
