First off I only added 3 cups of sugar instead of 4. I know lots of reviewers said 2 cups, but it wasn't the right texture with just 2.
Having said that, even with 3 cups of sugar it just didn't come out the right texture and came out kind of crappy smoothing on the cake. Not smooth at all. Also it's pretty greasy (and yes I used butter sticks and brand new name brand Jiffy peanut butter).
Also, even though it does taste good, it just tastes like sugared peanut butter. I don't know if it's the texture or what, but to me I'd like it to be a little more of a subtle flavor.
I will probably just try to add some peanut butter to a good buttercream frosting once I finally find one I like. That way I can have a more subtle peanut butter flavor.
Having said all of that above (my opinion), my husband who is a peanut butter freak, absolutely loved it and asked me to always make his birthday cakes with this frosting. So I suppose I'll have to try to tweak it some in order to get it the right flavor/texture combo.
