Great frosting. i used it on top of chocolate cupcakes and it was fantastic. I tinted all different colours and it mixed really well. It was a bit too stiff to work with so i put it in the microwave for 15 seconds and it was slightly more creamy. It holds its shape really well. So tasty!

I just tried this after finding out that I was out of shortening to make the buttercream frosting I usually use for cupcakes/sugar cookies. I am impressed! I used powdered (reconstituted) milk and it still turned out great. It set up quickly and spread wonderfully. I will use this instead of the other since I never really liked tasting the shortening anyway!

The frosting was tasty, though it was a bit too sweet so I added more butter and less sugar. It was also good with cocoa and melted chocolate.
