I made this exactly per the recipe. I would give it 4 stars for flavor, but 1 star for "workability" so two stars it is. I just made this for a two layer chocolate cake. I did so, after reading all the so-so reviews, with the intention of it just being the filling between the two layers. After spreading it on layer one, I applied the top cake layer and made sure everything was lined up. Before I could even start using my regular frosting for the outside, this Milky Way concoction started oozing out and dripping down the sides of layer one. No problem, I decided to just frost layer one with Milky Way and the top layer with regular frosting. And then all heck broke loose. Layer two started sliding off center on the "flow" of the Milky Way mess. And of course it was too sticky to allow me to adjust it back. (Though I tried, partially succeeding, though naturally the top layer got a bit nicked up.) But it just slid right off again. So I frosted the top layer with regular frosting, let it all slide and do what it wanted to do. We'll eat it, but there will be no pretty picture of this cake posted here. It's too bad. The flavor of the Milky Way frosting was great. It had cooled to room temperature and was "stiff" in the bowl. Even though it was spread on a cooled cake, though, it just went "loose" on me. I've removed this from my recipe box, with disappointment. It was great in theory anyway.
