Reviews forVanilla Frosting
"What a terrible recipe, such a mess."
"Sounds good and easy"
"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."
"It was my first time making actual homemade frosting, and it was really good for a start."
"it turned out like a sugary glob!"
"The recipe is right. Except one major part. Do not dump it in all at once. Slowly add the sugar about 1/2-1 cup at a time. Every other time add a drizzle of milk or flavored creamer a small drizzle at time. Add the vanilla on the last beat. This helps incorporate the sugar so you don't have a mouth full of confectioners sugar. Iv bee making frosting for years and I have found this way to be time consuming but so worth it."
"we didnt have enough regular sugar so we added maple sugar best mistake ever :D"
"easy to make but tasted way too much of confectioners sugar. Not something I would use again."
"Nice n easy."
"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!"
