I used 2 cups of powdered sugar, which was a little on the thin side if you want to pipe your frosting. I would recommend 2 1/2 to 3 cups if you want typical store-bought frosting consistency (beat with a mixer!).

How much confectioner's sugar for this recipe?

This recipe does not list the amount of powdered sugar to use! I would really like to use this recipe. My cousin had an amaretto flavored icing on her wedding cake and it was to die for!!
