This is by far the best frosting I have ever had! I made it with butter and butter flavor Crisco and I used whole milk for a more creamy frosting. I have never had so many compliments and it's so simple to make. It's so versatile that I made a double batch and used part to frost a cake and then we frosted sugar cookies. I do recommend making sure that you are beating it long enough so as to eliminate lumps of any kind and if your powdered sugar is lumpy, I would sift it before adding to the mixture. All and all- a most excellent recipe!

I made the chocolate version that someone posted in their review, replaced one cup confectioner's sugar with one cup cocoa and increased milk 1/4 cup. It tastes awesome and the texture is great! I worked at a bakery for 2 years and this is just like the frosting there, I am going to frost a cake tomorrow.

This is a simple but perfect, creamy, easily spreadable frosting that is dependable and just plain good. And it pipes well for decorations too! I just used a tad less sugar than called for, and used half and half rather than milk, which were not major alterations. Great frosting!
