This was good but not great, however i think that was my own fault, i used demerara sugar and it wasn't firmly packed and use milk instead of cream. So my end result was as caramely (is that a word!) or as dark in colour or as creamy as i thought it would be!! lol what did i expect?! I will defiantly try this again with the correct ingredients as what i ended up with was tasty. I will post another review when i've done it again!

This didn't work for me. It seized up when I added the powdered sugar with the butter separating. there was nothing I could do to fix it. I tried the hand blender and some other things. I'd like to know what I did wrong. I did use nonfat 1/2 and 1/2, other than that no deviations.

Tasty, but not enough "body" to really frost the cake like I wanted to. I had to add extra cornstarch and a recipe of dulce de leche to give it oomph. the flavor is good. I had to triple the recipe to have enough for my cake.
