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.

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

I made it just like the recipe but I did add just a pinch of tartar and it is amazing. So light and creamy. my favorite frosting by far. Thank you for sharing.

I am a fan. I made it exactly like the recipe and have no complaints. I'd been searching for a super easy light frosting for vanilla bean cupcakes that wasn't buttercream because I am NOT a fan....

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