Hickory Sin.

What was the biggest surprise during your baking journey? Did you use any unconventional approaches? What did you learn along the way? Tell us about it!

The method in this recipe for buttercream is different from the ways I’ve made it in the past. Not sure I liked this way, will have to try it at least one more time.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

Hickory nuts are everywhere in our backyard, so I used them instead of the hazelnuts.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
