I usually whip the heck out of it so it spreads well.

I did make changes by putting more milk because it was dry and not creamy. I love the taste tho'

Wonderful exactly as is!

I work in the kitchen at a nursing home and made this frosting for a cake for dessert one night. All of the residents loved it!

Great frosting.

I used 2 cups of confectioners sugar (all I had) and it turned out amazing. Don't need to buy store frosting anymore!

Very good

It was perfect for our chocolate cake!

Quick and easy and tastes great! Note: I used Becel because I didn't have real butter on hand.
