Simple enough. I did add 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar just to make it would be stable enough to sit out in the warm weather.

Really good; lighter than buttercream, but tastes better than whipped icing. Also taste to make sure it is sweet enough while it's mixing.

Made exactly from recipe, was much too ‘cream-y’ and the cream just coats your mouth. “Frosting” term is loosely used.

Easy whipped frosting to make

absolutely awesome recipe simple but excellent taste
