    Thrilla49's Note:

    I'm a baker at heart, but I've never had any luck with icing, until this recipe. I've combined a few recipes that didn't work and ended up with this easy, fluffy, and delicious icing recipe. It takes wonderfully to food colorings and other flavors.

      I thought this icing tasting fantastic! I've had troubles in the past making icing and this one is one of the best so far...although a little less vanilla would be recommended, maybe a quarter teaspoon less.

      the reason i give this 2 stars is because i think i may have accidnetly added in a litte more vanilla, either that or 2 teaspoons if way to much because it tasted very strong. some of my friends loved it and said it tasted liek vanilla ice cream. others where not so fond of it. i recomend that if you make it and store it int he fridge you let it sit out for 30-45 min before frosting because it hardens in the fridge and wont frost very well.after sitting out for a bit though it frosted marvously.
