Great frosting! Excellent consistency and super easy to make. I didn't modify a thing and it was the right texture for spreading with a spatula or using a pastry bag to pipe onto cupcakes (as shown in our photo).

Spotted this on your site just in time to make Thanksgiving dessert. Delicious and nothing could be easier. Though I didn't have a pastry bag, so I applied it by using the old zip-loc bag snipped at the corner trick.

i doubled the recipe and did a tiny bit of tweaking (it tasted great before the tweaking too)..i added a little more powdered sugar and 2 cap fulls (about 1 1/2-2 tbs for the doubled recipe) of vegetable oil to give it a little bit of shine and it looks and tastes great! ..now i have to wait for my cupcakes to finish so i can ice them!

This recipe works 100% of the time. To the other reviewer, clearly your review is fake and meant solely to bring down the value of this recipe for whatever reason since you didn't seem to even make it since you didn't provide any details. I use this frosting all the time and it comes out perfectly. PERFECTLY. I have no idea what your expectations were of a frosting recipe but this is PERFECT FROSTING.

I registered just to point out that this garbage recipe ruined my cake. Go elsewhere, seriously. I am an experienced cake maker and thought I would try this and it was just horrid.
CDKitchen Note: You're an experience cake maker yet you couldn't give better reasons why this recipe didn't work? Not a helpful review if you can't explain what went wrong. Simply saying it's "garbage" isn't helpful or descriptive. Others have had success with the recipe so it would be helpful to hear why your version didn't turn out. You also gave it 5 stars... ?

Didn't have evaporated milk, so I was looking for a great recipe! This was perfect! I added in a little extra cocoa for more chocolaty-ness!

Loved this recipe. excatly what I was looking for. Quick & easy. I did need to add another tblespoon of sugar to make it alittle thicker and just for my own preference, about 1/4 tsp of fine sea salt. I love sweet & salty! This will be my new "go to" frosting!

This is great, I should mention only because no one else here seemed to, that you should use dutch process cocoa not the regular type. It really makes a difference. I also beat mineat a higher speed quite a bit and it had an airy, satiny, texture that was really good!
