Here's some tips: I adjust it for 24 servings - it's an even 1/2 c. butter. Keep heavy cream to 1/2 c. as well. Only add sugar gradually until desired consistency - this will prevent grainy. ...

Easy, yummy, and easy-to-make frosting. However, bit too much almond flavor for my family. Next time I make it I will cut in half the amount of almond extract.

Very easy recipe (esp with AllRecipes ability to change the serving/ingredients). Taste was good (my girls love sweet!) but texture was a bit grainy. Great recipe if you are brand-new at makin...
