    Delicious!! Worked perfectly and was very smooth! It actually tastes similar to chick-fil-a ice cream! Except of course, frosting!

    It was really grainy and not fluffy at all.

    This frosting was just the perfect topping for my peanut butter cupcakes. I only added 4 tbsp of jelly just to add so the cupcakes weren’t too strong. I also had to make my powered sugar but it was amazing!

    Excellent taste, only had to add in one more tablespoon of milk to get the thickness I wanted. Topped the cupcakes perfectly

    Very tasty. I randomly started cutting the recipe in half because i only had a pound of sugar. if i wouldve used the normal amounts, it would have made ALOT of frosting

    It turned out to be more like an icing, and was very heavy.
    It was delicious. So creamy.

    Very smooth and not heavy at all. I added a bit of salt to mine, but everything else just like the recipe, turned out great.

    It was good!! I added more vanilla, some cocoa powder, and some cinnamon and that seemed to add a bit more flavor :)

    It is very delicious. the only issue I found was the mixture is so stiff it is hard to pipe. Next time I will add more milk.
