"My 9 yr old daughter loves it. We did use 4.5 cups of sugar. We didnt understand. Lesson learned. Thanks it was sumple and tasty."
"This was terrible. So runny! Not happy at all. It should say teaspoons."
"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."
