Fantastic flavor! Mine came out thin as well, but I think it is because I didn't mix the butter and sour cream, etc. together before adding the confectioners sugar. Maybe adding the sugar should be designated a 2nd step in the recipe, because I missed that (got distracted baking with my daughter) and put all the ingredients in the bowl and then mixed. I added some more powdered sugar to try to thicken it, but it is still more of a glaze consistency. I substituted some Fiori di Sicilia (a vanilla and citrus oil blend) for the vanilla, which made the end result very pleasantly citrusy. We are using the frosting on a gingerbread cake. If I make this again, I'll also try using the whisk attachment on my stand mixer, rather than the paddle, that also may help with the consistency problem.
