    Marvelous photos. You cannot possibly be serious when you call yourself an Intermediate cook. Your recipes sound (and look) professional.

    Genius! Sheer genius!! I agree with Vivian, you do need to upgrade your designation to Master Chef! AND, get your recipes published!! Much better than most of cook books in the store, and we're all getting them for free! (Hmmm, maybe I should rethink this...) OK, so keep posting here, but for those folks who don't know about Group Recipes, let 'em pay for your recipes!! LOL

    Another wonderful idea (and recipe), Ahmed!!! I'd probably add a drop or two of lemon extract to the white frosting just for a hint of surprise in the flavor. Thanks for this divine recipe.

    I think you should change you profile to "Master Chef" as you are much better than many that state that they are "Master Chef's"
    I have saved this too!
