"What a terrible recipe, such a mess."

"Sounds good and easy"

MY REVIEW

"Great base recipe, but like others said, the powdered sugar flavor is WAY too strong. I added more vanilla, about twice the recommended amount. I also added much more butter, about 4tbspns. Those two things really helped scale back the overpowering sugar taste, and made it a great frosting. With those changes, it's now my go-to frosting and I've gotten loads of compliments."
