Very good. I don't have a mixer, so I don't really enjoy making frosting. I mixed together everything except the butter and sugar, then creamed and alternated. Once I started adding the liquid mix, the stirring was much easier than with most frostings. I added about a tablespoon of corn syrup, I find it helps cut the 'powdered sugar' taste. Easy to color, easy to use, didn't form a crust too fast which is nice (I was sprinkling sugar etc).
It was good as an icing but not the best. I would recommend adding a little lemon flavor to it.
Very tasty !! I made it exactly like the recipe read... and ended up with left over sugar. The frosting got really thick quick! I added a little milk to soften it and attempted to frost a cake. I am an amateur at cake frosting, maybe thats why I had so much trouble. The milk I added made the frosting too soft to use in my cake decorating attachments. I was afraid to add anything more to it....all in all a great tasting frosting!!!
