"Good flavor and real easy. I actually omitted the cocoa because I wanted a vanilla frosting and added a little extra vanilla extract. Tip: don't overmix as it will begin to separate. It was an very..." See more easy recipe."
"WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?? A super frosting, all around terrific recipe! I have tried many recipes from this site but was never inspired enough (postive or negative) to post a comment. However..." See more, this recipe rocks. I did have to tweak it based on what I had on hand -- I used stick margerine, and substituted nonfat dry milk for the cocoa, because I wanted a vanilla frosting (I substitute NFDM for 1/3 of the sugar in most of my baking recipes). I think because I used margarine, which is more watery than butter, I only had to use about half the milk. Anyway, the taste is absolutely yummy. It's a great consistancy and eminently spreadable, even on a crumbly baked-with-applesauce-instead-of-oil cake. Easy to make and apply, delicious, what more could you ask for? This recipe isn't just a keeper, it's going to be laminated for a place in my recipe hall of fame! Love it!!!!!!!"
