I took the reviews into consideration while making this for cupcakes, and didn't want them too sugary, so I added 3 tbsp cocoa pwdr. and kept everthing else the same as the recipe called for. My icing came out so thick and I think I might have figured out why some are having problems with it being too thin. If you are using margering instead of butter, there is a higher content of water in it. This frosting is fantastic for cupcakes, nice and thick if you use butter. I'll be keeping this easy and delicous recipe.

Very easy to make. No problem with the consistency, but others might have had a problem if the butter was melted or didn't mix long enough. Mom's tip is to add a touch of salt to help even out the sweetness. Turned out great.

This recipe is a bit sweet if you are using it without the cocoa. If you do use cocoa with it, it tastes great. I added a half cup of cream cheese (making the vanilla version) and it tasted even better. This does NOT yeild 3 cups, I only got 1 and 1/2 or so cups out of this.
