I added 3/4 cup of sugar because I didnt have 12 cups of the suggested ( I only had about 8). It came out fine. Also don't add all the confectioners sugar at once. Add it in gradually. Will definitely make it again!

I thought this was frosting, it is just goop!!!! I am disappointed. I was making cupcakes in a short amount of time, and now I have to restart the “frosting” again!!!!! I am so MAD!!!!

I had no luck making this frosting. It came out too dry for me. I played around with it and came up with 1/2 cup butter 1/2 solid Crisco only 4 cups confectionery sugar and a touch of vanilla extract. The best frosting I ever made I even added in another recipe made the same way some cocoa powder for a light chocolate delicious

I made a half batch. Texture was nice and thick, and I did have to add a touch more milk as the recipe indicated. The only reasons I could think that others had trouble was not measuring exactly, and I also put ingredients in my stand mixer in the order listed, and used 6/10 speed. Worked great for me!

I think the amount of milk this recipe suggests is too much. I followed the directions to a T and its runny like icing. I will have to go get more sugar to make it thicker.... hopefully its not gonna ruin it if I don't do it right away. The store us closed for the night so it will have to wait... but I would suggest to add the milk slowly until you get the consistency you desire. The taste is fantastic!

Even with softened butter there were huge clumps of butter. Additionally, it came out as a complete liquid. Tastes great but its hard to frost a cake with liquid!

This recipe is great! I’m not sure why people are saying it’s watery and icing-like. It’s thick like how frosting is supposed to be and very easy to make. I already had all the ingredients and I’m sure anyone could make it!

Absolutely delicious and worked perfectly on our cupcakes! We followed the directions and will definitely make again.
