Am I the only one who makes icing just to eat it? Anyway this icing was really sweet, but the texture was good, and I will definitely use it again when I'm baking a cake to go with it!
Warning, if you don't like real sweet frosting this isn't for you! But this was extremely easy to make! It was easy to spread over the cake the top of the cake didn't peel off like usual. I put it in the fridge to harden up some and it's good! All my family loves it and made me save the recipe.
Veryyyyy sweet! Nice and fluffy and easily spreadable though. It's nice. I'm probably going to make this again unless I find a better one.
I used only 4 cups of the sugar and added 5 tablespoons fresh lime juice and lime zest. Nice tangy flavor. Spread easily and didn't run - even on a hot humid day. Everyone loved it :)
This recipe was so easy. I also found it a little runny,but I made the frosting before the cake. I put it in the fridge while the cake was cooking & cooling. The frosting now how the Consistency of regular frosting! I also put a package of Strawberry jello in the butter when mixing! It was yummy!!
