Reviews for Easy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

"Loved it, thank you"
"If you devolve about 1/2 teaspoon of salt in the milk or water when making icing it will cut the sweetness."
"I chose to make the peanut butter flavor and used 7 Tbsps of 1% milk and only 3 cups of sugar and that was too sugary for me. I think next time, I will use a bit more peanut butter and 2 cups of sugar. Overall, it was very yummy"
"Ever notice how the 5 star ratings always start out great recipe or so easy, yet they change a half dozen of the steps?"
"I liked it. I made the original vanilla flavor. It was a nice texture for cake frosting. I also used it for piping decorations. I wish it were not so sweet, but I suppose excessively sweet is a given with buttercream."
