For those who didn't have success with the consistency of their frosting - it doesn't mention it in the recipe but make sure you beat the mixture after stirring in the milk and adding the vanilla! It will whip up nicely after a few minutes. I 2.5x the recipe to cover two, 6x6 inch cakes.

So yummy!!! This was the first time I ever made homemade frosting, and I'm never going to buy store bought ever again!! So incredibly easy, and not too sweet. I used baking cocoa instead of regular cocoa, and it's the perfect sweetness. Even my boyfriend who doesn't like sweets loved it!!

Fantastic recipe--so quick & easy to put together! I cut the recipe in half to frost some cupcakes--I think I would cut the powdered sugar down just a bit but other than that it was wonderful. thanks so much for sharing!

This is by far the worst. I really wish I had bought some at the store as a backup because it's now 9pm and I have no choice but to use this horrible frosting for my cake. I followed the directions exactly but this frosting is runny and somehow the chocolate flavor tastes fake despite it coming from cocoa powder. I love frosting. I could literally sit and eat a batch at a time but the left over of this is going straight in the trash

I used the Hazel nut liquid coffee creamer instead of milk , and used almond extract instead of vanilla I also added 2 teaspoons butter extract flavoring to give it more of a butter taste and subtracted the 2 teaspoons from my creamer so it was not to much liquid . and this was the best butter cream I have ever made , We LOVED it

EXCELLENT FROSTING!!! I did double the recipe because we like a lot of frosting! Also, I did use buttermilk instead of regular milk (idea from another reviewer) and then I substituted some of the vanilla with butter extract. Also, used dark chocolate cocoa. FABULOUS!!!!
