UPDATE: I made this frosting yesterday and my review at that time is below. Today, however, I'm not as pleased. The frosting became crunchy and it lifts off my cupcakes in one large piece. I ended up "lifting" the frosing off each of my 2 doz cupcakes and had to use store bought frosting since I'm taking them to a gathering tonight. This is fine if you're eating your treat immediately, but wait any longer and you'll have a huge disappointment on your hands. Lowering my rating to 2 stars.**I'm still on the fence with this one. I made the recipe exactly as stated. I used my electric stand mixer so I could do both steps at the same time. As I added the hot sugar mixture, the whip beater splattered some of the mixture around the upper edges of the bowl which quickly hardened. I found that the mixture had alot of sugary crystals at the bottom so I only used the frosting from the middle of the bowl. I had plently but felt I wasted alot due to it being crystalized in some areas. I liked the taste & fluffiness of the frosting but I wasn't pleased with all the crystalized pieces.
