I hate to write negative reviews, but after preparing this frosting, I had no choice. This is NOT a buttercream frosting! This frosting tasted like whipped lard. If you are looking for a REAL butter cream frosting, then this is not the recipe for you.


This is a great receipe, it was easy and it tastes like ice cream. I don't know what problems everyone was having but the butter has to be room temp, the milk has to be cooled and added slowly and it needs to be whipped about 10 to 15 minutes. If you make the receipe correctly it will be good! Also white sugar means granulated sugar.

I followed the recipe to a tee and this came out perfectly! It's just like the professionally-made buttercream that was on my wedding cake. One tip: My icing seemed to have creamed together after about 5 minutes, and I considered stopping beating it. However, I'm glad I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE and beat it for 20 minutes, because the consistency was much creamier and more consistent!
