"This is delicious!"
"Thanks for sharing this recipe I like that you gave so many ways to make different kinds."
"Very simple recipe with good flavor. It is important to note that the recipe means 4- half cups, as in just 2 cups, not 4 &1/2 cups of confectioners' sugar. I think the person who provided this recipe wrote it the way they did because it is easier to beat in the sugar if you do it just a half cup at a time. Any more than 2 &1/2 cups is going to be far too sweet. I'd also like to add that sometimes I put 4 oz of softened cream cheese in the mix for a slightly different taste."
"Very easy to make and turned out great!!!"
"Recipe is great!! I couldnt help myself to add 12 oz cream cheese in addition to the rest of the recipe as listed. It helped calm down the sweetness."
