it was just okay. I had to add A LOT of lemon juice to give it any flavor besides confectioner's sugar. Read More

Loved it! I made the recipe as it except I left out the lemon peel and orange peel. I used Earth Balance butter since my son is allergic to dairy. I added one tablespoon more of the orange juice and lemon juice to get it at the consistency that I wanted. Colored and frosted it on a gingerbread cake for Christmas. Looks great! I will be using this one again. Read More
