"Mmmmmm this frosting is really good. You can either ice cookies with it, or cut pieces of cake into small shapes and make "petit fours"."

Quick, easy, tasted great! I downsized the recipe to use for a smaller batch of cookies. I loved it! It came out smooth and I was spreading this on cookies like a pro! I made Valentine's cookies and the pink frosting looks and tastes delicious. I would recommend it and definately use it again! I like the petit fore (sp?) idea and will try that soon.
I used this frosting to pipe onto cupcakes, so I only used enough milk to get it to the consistency I wanted for that. I found this on the high range of sweetness with 4 cups of powdered sugar, and for my liking 1 T. of vanilla was about three times more than I would have preferred.
Outstanding, I needed a recipe that would give me a frosting in just a few minutes and this did the trick. My wife loved it so much she's been snacking on the leftovers!
Doesn't curdle like other frosting recipes I've tried. It has a great flavor and takes color really nicely. Even without coloring it produces a very nice white color. I put the frosting on while the cookies were still warm. They frosting melted nicely over them producing a shiny hard frosting layer. It looks professional. I highly recommend this recipe.
I love this frosting for cut out cookies! You can vary the thickness by the amount of milk - I have used it in a bag with tip to write and decorate, and thinner as an all over frosting for cookies. It dries very nicely so that you can stack the cookies and they still look good.
I used 1/4 of the milk for a thicker frosting. This was enough to cover the top and sides of a 25cm (10 inch) round cake with a cup full leftover. And yes, it's really GOOD.
I've tried many frosting recipes from this site and this is one of the best. The taste is great, it's easy to make, and it dries nice and hard. My cookies looked and tasted like something from a bakery. I highly recommend this recipe. Thank you, it's a relief to finally have a good frosting recipe!!!
Made a great frosting on my chocolate cake. Smooth and creamy.
