This icing was repulsive. I've been a baker for about 35 years now, and decided to try out this website. This icing tastes like pure sugar. My baby even hated it. She threw it at my braces.

FINITO..... My dermatologist actually recommended to use icings as facials to remove sun spots and pimples...so i ended up using this for a facial! it actually worked great and i definitely recommend this for that, as for the taste... a disappointment for me and my fetus.

For those that had problems with this recipe. When you are adding powdered sugar to any recipe (even flour) you should add slowly only adding more when it is incorporated. Add only part of the milk with each addition of sugar. If it gets too thick add more milk at a rate of 1/8 teaspoon at a time. If you need thicker icing/frosting for decoration then make the mixture thicker. This is a basic recipe for more buttercream icing/frosting.
