Didn't work well for me...was rock hard, even with a candy thermometer. Amount of flavoring to use is not given. What is the "powdered sugar for dusting" for?
Frosting went very hard very fast, ended up using a double boiler system to keep it soft enough to work with. No advice or amounts of flavoring to use. Recipie makes a very small amount of frosting.
