Sometimes the best presents are homemade.
With that in mind, consider baking something sweet for your loved one this Valentine's Day. Brooke Wilson, owner of Love & Buttercream in Oakland Township, showed us how to easily make frosting for sugar cookies and properly frost the baked goods.
Wilson is a Royal Oak resident who operates Love & Buttercream out of her parent's house. After attending pastry school and growing up baking scrumptious treats as a hobby, Wilson decided to create her own business that specializes in cookies, cupcakes, cakes and everything sweet. She said she likes to get creative and offer her customers, most of whom are from Oakland Township, Rochester and Royal Oak, something unique.
Wilson showed us how to create thin and thick frosting for sugar cookies and then how to properly decorate them. The recipe she used is simple: just milk and powdered sugar, along with some pink coloring in the spirit of Valentine's Day. Watch Wilson's three-part how to video on frosting to learn more.
