80 Fantastically Frosted Delights

From Sweet Soda Cakes to Sunny-Side Up Desserts

— December 24, 2012 — Lifestyle
Dessert is the best part of a meal and these frosted delights are the perfect finish to any dinner. Frosting is used in a variety of different ways in baking, but the one thing they all have in common is a serious yum factor.

The cake, cupcake and cookie finds you'll see in this collection are perfect for holiday entertaining or that special persons birthday. Many are infused with unexpected ingredients like cookie dough or alcohol to help increase the level of acceptability amongst picky sweet connoisseurs. Frosting is a several century old recipe that involves lots of butter, sugar and a little ingenuity to create the perfect combination.

What you'll additionally find is that each one doesn't sacrifice style for deliciousness as each one looks good enough to eat and the hope is that you'll do just that.
