      Oh my!!! You will not be disappointed! EXCELLENT frosting! Not too sweet & very light from all of the whipping. Simply the best.

      Have had the vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting from Magnolia Bakery in NYC many, many times. Recipe turns out just like it - delicious and chocolate-y. Love it! Thank you.
