I was hoping for a thicker, "whipped" texture like in most of the cupcake photos on here where they have swirls on top. Mine came out quite runny. Maybe adding more powdered sugar would have fixed that, but I felt that it was almost too sweet already, and didn't want it to be more so. I tried adding more cocoa, but it didn't change it much. The frosting also looked grainy. The milk didn't beat in smoothly or easily at all. Is this because I used butter instead of margarine? Or maybe because it was my first attempt at homemade frosting and just missed some unwritten rule? Don't get me wrong, the taste was still nice on the cake that I made, but it's a good thing it was just a square pan cake for my husband and I that didn't need to look "pretty". I didn't get the overall result I was hoping for.
