Sorry but I had a problem with the filling. Did I misread it??? was the sugar suppose to be powered sugar? I have a kitchen-aid (stand) mixer and I followed the directions for the filling and I mixed and mixed and mixed the filling and it never did turn fluffy. if it were a hand mixer i would have worn out both hands trying to get this mixture to turn fluffy. IF I DID something wrong please let me know. Meanwhile I will NOT try it again nor would I recommend it
