    I make this frosting often and it is very good. Not good for piping unless you chill it well! Melted butter in icing does not make for good piping frosting-it will just melt.

    this frosting’s good but believe me for health sake you won’t want all that sugar on it, I’ve made it several times but reducing sugar to between 1/2 cup up to maybe 1 cup, the final flavor’s semisweet but still tasty. I recommend you making it like that, I love it.

    This looks so good and so easy to make. I think I’ll use it on my husband’s birthday cake! I would totally add the confetti sprinkles, but he would not appreciate that. 🙂
