Hi MizzNezz, I tried this recipe because I didn't care if it did turn out to be a glaze or not,and wanted to see if I could make it turn out right,I used a themometer to get the right temperature,and it turned out real nice,it wasn't a glaze,so I think maybe the other lady just didn't get it to temperature or something.Anyway it was delicious.Thanks,Darlene

I don't know what I did wrong, but his ended up being a glaze rather than frosting for me.
