I was so excited to try this recipe. I love marshmallow and buttercream so I thought this was a match made in heaven. I was so disappointed. It was so sickening sweet, I wouldn't even use it as-is. Even having read the reviews, I used short cups of powdered sugar, so probably used about an 1/8 - 1/4 cup less than the recipe called for. In an attempt to salvage all these ingredients, I bought another small jar of marshmallow cream and folded that into the frosting. That did help mellow out super sweet powdered sugar taste a little. My advice to anyone making the 1st time it is to add only 2 cups (or less) or powdered sugar. Then at the end set maybe a 1/4 of the butter/sugar mixture off the side. Add the marshmallow cream to the remaining butter/sugar mixture. If it not too sweet, fold some of the butter/sugar mixture back into the marshmallow cream mixture. That way you can better control the sweetness level. This recipe makes so much, you probably won't miss any extra butter/sugar you don't use. If you have extra, you can always adjust your recipe for next time.
