Salted Caramel Frosting


When choosing between dessert flavors at a bakery, ice cream shop, etc., if there is salted caramel, there is a good chance that I will be giving that a try (unless there is mint oreo/cookies & cream - then there would be a tough decision to make!).  I just love salted caramel flavors.  I'm sure I've said it before that while I like sweets, I don't necessarily crave them (give me chips and cheese please!), but what I may not have said is that if it's a salty sweet - well, that's a whole new ballgame there!

Sadly, I haven't made many salted caramel flavors before... but I'm hoping that will change.  Starting with this amazing, yet simple, frosting.

Salted Caramel Frosting
Ingredients:
2 sticks butter, room temperature
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup salted caramel (homemade or store bought*)
3 1/2 - 4 cups powdered sugar
*If you can't find store bought Salted Caramel sauce simply add about 1 teaspoon of sea salt to the caramel)

Directions:
With an electric mixer, cream together cream cheese and butter until thoroughly blended.

Pour in Caramel and mix until combined.

Slowly mix in powdered sugar, beating for a few minutes until the frosting is light and fluffy.

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my! But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?   Check !  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do !  Pumpkin?  Well of course !  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try! One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix
