Outstanding!!! This recipe is so easy and there are so many ways you can change and alter it to fit what ever your mood is. I used this recipe for my smores cupcakes as well as my lemon cream cupcakes by simply adding lemon extract instead of vanilla and then thowing some candied lemon crumbles on top. Yummmmmmy! see photo's I attached

My 5 year old wanted to make a surprise cake for Daddy, and I needed a frosting recipe that was quick, easy, and nearly foolproof. Presto! Followed this one exactly, and it turned out great. Good consistency, nice flavor, easy to spread. No one would know it was a "cheat!" I'll use this one again, for sure.
