"I have always enjoyed baking. Experimenting and changing recipes to find the ultimate dessert to share with others, is a fun experience. It is also been a pleasure for me to share recipes & ideas with others. Whether it be delivering a dessert to a family member or the little old lady neighbor. I have always enjoyed sharing food with others who are unable to find time to bake themselves.
This recipe was an experiment with other recipes on the internet. I enjoy the Door County Coffee, Highlander Grogg & thought it would be a fun experiment using your product. I love to bake cupcakes & make homemade butter cream frostings for friends, neighbor, get togethers, and school functions. This recipe is sweet, unique and very flavorful."
