I thought the frosting had good taste....Just not a good decorating frosting. I thought it was very time consuming. May use again on a cake that I won't be decorating.

Wonderful icing just did 3 gradulation cakes and it holds shape wonderfully. This is a keeper!!!!!

This is a great frosting. But I had to make two batches to have enough- but I had a three layer cake. Also it would help if you told people to mix the sugar and flour well before adding the milk. Thank You!
