  • The concept for the bakery came from the fertile mind of Duff Goldman and wanted his staff to be people he knew would be of a like mind and they work together like a well oiled machine
  • One of the most memorable episodes is the one where they worked with the Make a Wish Foundation where a child with a serious illness was given the run of the bakery and designed her own cake for a Make a Wish party

I am having a problem with my frosting seperating. It is a recipe from my mother in law whom is passed and we made it all the time, for some reason i can not get it right. The frosting looks really good while beating it in the mixer but as soon as you stop the mixer it turns dark and seams to seperate and look very bad. if you start up the mixer again in is more white and fluffy but alas when you stop it, it seperates again can you help me. I am enclosing the recipe it is as follows……. 1 4 cup flour , 1 cup milk , pinch of salt , 1 cup granulated sugar , 1 2 cup crisco , 1 stick oleo , 2 tsp. vanilla. Cook flour, milk, and salt together in sauce pan stirring constantly over low heat til very thick. Let cool. cream sugar, crisco and oleo at high speed till light and fluffy. Fold in flour mixture and add vanilla. beat til light and fluffy. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. It just stumps me that my mother in law and i have made this recipe sooooo many times and now i can not get it to work and it is her exact recipe. I have even tried oleo with lower oil percent or higher percent and it did not make a difference. Thank you so much Charlotte h20lakebum

Given the fact that you are saying that it turns dark, makes me think that the vanilla might be causing the problem. Are you using a different vanilla than you did when you made the recipe before? Perhaps it has a higher alcohol content or other wise different chemical compound. Nothing else in the recipe should look dark, that is why I think that might be the problem. Why not try adding the vanilla when you cream the sugar, oleo and crisco and see if that helps it incorporate better. Best of luck
