After I beat this icing for 3 minutes, I noticed it was thickening a lot as it cooled..it even slowed my electric mixer down. As soon as it hit the cake it hardened like a rock, and was completely unspreadable. I tried broiling it to warm it to spreading consistency, and of course it burned and I had to scrape every bit of it off. I ended up heating some blueberry jam (the only thing I could find, as I had used the last of my sugar up in this icing) and spread that on top of my scarred cake as a glaze.
Perhaps if more milk was added next time?
Not sure I want to risk the loss of another cup of sugar.
