"Very easy to make , works great if you need a white palate to decorate on. I add a little more vanilla just because I like it. Love it on cupcakes!"

"very good frosting but the powdered sugar is a dominating taste to the vanilla but overall very good, if it is to thick try putting two more tablespoons of milk in and it should loosen um"

"I made this recipe last night and it turned out delicious. I read some previous reviews and added 1 tablespoon of vanilla to a double batch. I will definitely be making this again!"

"Although mine tasted a bit like confectioners sugar, and I don't own a mixer (yet), this is very nice. I added extra vanilla for more flavor."
