I made it a little over the top by adding 3/4 of a jar of Nutella to the frosting (huge hit on the cake). The person who found the frosting tasted it. The bowl came out of the fridge and people started looking for something to put it on. They found a box of graham crackers and it became the prefered food at the party. A few people took small bowls and filled them with the frosting, and were eating it with spoons! I was somewhat amazed at people's reactions to this simple frosting. It would go great on yeasty waffles.

Can you imagine dipping strawberries in it and placing on a waffle?

How could THAT be bad? Without making frosting, though, Nutella is a great waffle topping, and would be a fun addition to your brunch buffet.

And Mazel Tov on your new grandchild!

Kayelle, poached eggs in aspic are an old timey ladies luncheon dish. It is what is sounds like. The key is a well flavored base stock, clarified, with a bit of gelatin added. You put a bit of aspic in your mold and let it set, then add any garnish you like (chicken tarragon stock for me, so a few tarragon leaves and a bit of lemon zest, because I like lemon and tarragon together) set the eggs on the garnishes, cover with the liquid aspic, chill until set, unmold and enjoy. I hadn't thought about it in years and it is a bit fussy, but if you have the eggs and plenty of stock in the freezer, the hot weather we are having calls it to mind.

I like waffles with stewed dried fruit and greek yogurt, easy to prep ahead!
Bolognaise sauce is also good on waffles with grated cheese.
Butterscotch sauce with banana etc....

But all your ideas sound great!

Oh wow Nora!! This sounds really interesting, and I've never heard of it...lowrd knows I'm old enough to be "old timey"..... My mom has been gone many years and she loved tomato aspic.....she used a shortcut of using half tomato juice and half Snappy Tom, but I like your suggestions for a clear aspic. I'm definitely going to try this. Thanks.
