      I think this recipe is a quick easy way to make icing. I used No Name Dessert Topping Mix and I didn't add the extra couple tbsps. of milk. My icing is quite thick with a 400g bag of icing sugar from Dollarama. I've dipped a finger in here and there to test it out and will be adding some cocoa to turn it into chocolate. I think it will be great on my Valentine's Day cupcakes :) Yum!

      My family thought this frosting was very sweet and I thought it was a little grainy...from the dream whip perhaps? Definitely more of a whipped cream than a buttercream, you cannot pipe it unless you add much more powdered sugar (even sweeter) and I don't think it crusts at all, unless it takes a very, very long time (I have this frosting on a mini cake that has been on my counter for a day). Great for trifles and shortcakes but overall disappointing as a frosting.
