      This did not turn into frosting at all.I went by the recipe exactly.It just turned into a pale blob of sugary slop.All those ingredients ended up in the garbage.I was skeptical about making an icing without icing sugar,I didn't have any.I should have just went and bought some and made my usual recipe.

      Oh my goodness! I used butter instead of shortening and it came out perfect.

      This was so good and so easy. I have always been lazy and gone with the canned frosting. Never again. Be sure to time it correctly and then add 10 seconds. It set up so fast I had to hurry and get it spread. I also beat it setting the pan in ice water to hurry it along. Worked great.
