The flavour for this icing is nice. I added real amber rum instead of rum extract. I used it on cupcakes so I also added quite a bit more icing sugar to thicken. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This frosting is so good with the rum sugar cookies. I found I had to add a lot more water to get it thin enough to frost the cookies. Read More
