The Best Cake Icing You will ever Eat

When it comes to food I can be quite picky sometimes whether it be the texture of the food weirds me out or the after taste is just plain awful. I'm even picky when it comes to desserts. Yes. Desserts of all things. How can anybody resist the warmth and comfort of warm apple turnovers or the sweet indulgence of chocolate cake? Believe me, I love chocolate cake as much as the next person, but the icing can really make-or-break it no matter how delectable the cake is on its own.

Like most grandmothers, my grandma was all for home-cooking. Usually everything was homemade--even her desserts. One particular treat I adored of hers was a devils food cake with this light, buttery icing that really doesn't have a name. It became such a favorite in my household, we just refer to it as "that fluffy white icing". I don't know if this unnamed recipe was her original concoction or if she had found it somewhere in an old cook book but it is hands down the best cake icing I've ever eaten. It's light, perfectly sweet, and fluffy like a little golden retriever puppy.

Unfortunately, my grandma had passed away back in 2007, but luckily we took it upon ourselves to photocopy the original recipe she had written down. 10 years later I want to share this amazing yet simplistic recipe for all you foodies (and picky-eaters) to enjoy.

The best part about this cake icing it doesn't require many ingredients, and preparation is very easy. It's as follows:

(I don't make the cake from scratch. I use Betty Crocker's Devils food cake mix)

1 cup of milk

5 tablespoons of flour

2 sticks of butter

1 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon of milk

In one small pot, attentively stir 1 cup of milk and 5 tablespoons of flour until mixture is thick. Allow to cool down and stick in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

In a separate pot, combine butter, sugar, and 1 teaspoon of milk and beat until smooth. Then add the flour and milk mixture to sugar mixture and mix until smooth. Spread evenly on the cooled chocolate cake.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
