That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to...

Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what...

These are delicious! I used light brown sugar since the recipe didn't say which. Also used rice milk instead of just water for the frosting. And palm shortening. We like tart, so we used less sugar in the frosting than it...

Can someone explain to me what it means by 1 lemon zest and juice.

You start with one lemon, and then use all the zest and juice you can get from it. I have a little hand zester to use on the peel to get the zest. Then I either cut the lemon into wedges that I squeeze by hand or cut it into half to use on a small...

You want the zest and the juice from 1 lemon. Zest it first, then cut it in half and juice it.

The zest is the yellow skin of the lemon. You can use a small grater to get it off the lemon. Try not to get much of the white stuff that's underneath the skin, as this is bitter.

Doesn't powdered sugar have corn starch in it? At least all the powdered sugar I have looked at does.

There are corn free versions of powdered sugar. Maybe someone else reading this can tell you if they know a brand you can check out.

Trader Joe's powdered sugar is corn-free.

...or, you can make your own powdered sugar in a "dry" Vitamix blender container by grinding up regular sugar...but I prefer to buy it at Trader Joe's since I feel as if I make almost everything else mysef! Trader Joe's version has...

Wholesome Sweeteners powdered sugar is also corn free - it uses tapioca starch. Trader Joe's is great, but it's only available "seasonally" during the winter/holiday baking season. They may still have some left, so stock up if you find it!

My Trader Joe's stocks it all year... I wonder if you could get it more often by talking to the store manager? They are always very nice. I'll bet Trader Joe's "brand" is really repackaged Wholesome Sweeteners!
