MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 20, 2015

"So, I made this today to frost a 2 layer deep dark chocolate sour cream cake. I followed the recipe exactly and it was very runny and made about 2 runny cups. I added more powdered sugar, which meant I had to add more Amaretto to get the flavor. It was gummy and really sweet, so I added 3 more tablespoons of SOFTENED (not melted) butter so that it wasn't sickening sweet and then more Amaretto. I'd say I used about 5 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup cream, almost a 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup Amaretto. All in all, it turned out good once I got the right consistency to frost my cake.

Follow up. It slid down the side of the cake. I changed my rating from 4 stars to 2. Now I have to scrape the rest of it off and start over looking for a better recipe. Very disappointed."

"Frosting was stiff so I had to add more cream/Amaretto. I would also double the recipe next time to make sure I have enough frosting to give each cupcake a decent amount. Doesn't have a strong Amaretto flavor unless you add additional."

"really good! My mom loves amaretto, so I added more than the recipe called for, and they were really good"
