Peanut Buttter Cream Frosting

Someone will get a piece of this cake with a shelled peanut in it and a hole on the side, unless it goes all the way through... That's a lot of fire power for one peanut, too. But it is a cute drawing!

Here's the recipe for Peanut Butter Cream Frosting, from the Domino Sugar Kitchen. I will move on to Easter recipes starting this weekend but eventually I'll put up every drawing from this cookbook - as they are all so great.
1/4 lb. soft butter or margarine
1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/8 tsp. salt
1 lb. Domino Confectioners sugar
6-8 tablespoons milk
Blend butter or margarine, peanut butter and salt in large bowl.  Cream one-third of sugar into mixture.  Blend 4 tablespoons milk, then remaining sugar into mixture.  Gradually stir remaining milk into frosting until desired spreading consistency is reached. 

I'll bet this would be wonderful with chocolate cake.

I packed several books for this trip, of course, and should have some good mysteries to mention next week!
