Its so unfortunate that a site like this has to have illiterate people like the non-intelligent Bbhluvhhsr on it who has an obvious limited non-sensical vocabulary and shows no intellect to use those words here. How he's even baking anything is a mystery. This recipe is PERFECT! It is easy, works easy and took about 3 minutes to make. 5 star!! Great job.

Recipe could use some tweaking. I tried this 3 times and it didn’t work once. I made sure every measurement was exact and when that didn’t work I played around with it.

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 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!
