"Love it! Yes, it is very sweet and I'm so glad! Most of the other buttercream frosting recipes I tried were not and thus, very bland to me. When I looked at the reviews for this recipe and saw people complaining about it being too sweet I knew I had to try it. Icing is meant to be sweet! And this one fits the bill! I did add a little extra milk to make it more spreadable but other than that it's perfect."- AprilCanLearnToCook

christinagarrett 3 months agoMy 10 year-old daughter used this recipe for her cupcakes. She's giving it 3 stars because it was too sweet. We did not have any lemons on hand, so instead we juiced a pomegranate and used that to cut the sweetness. It worked and added a natural pink color to the icing. She would use again, we just know to cut the sweetness.

mogriff1 1 year agoThis turned out weird. It was more like a sugary, runny glaze with a strong essence of vanilla extract. To make it work I added cream cheese and more powdered sugar to try to compensate for the flavor and thicken the texture. It helped but I also had to refrigerate it to firm it up. I won't use this recipe again.
