I thought this was a very good frosting. I used it to frost some sugar cookies. It is a nice change from the usual frosting. Thanks for sharing!

WAY too sweet for me. The sugar and the syrup was suagr overload for most of us. I frosted some simple shortbread cookies with this frosting. Half of the people who tried this loved it, the other half couldnt handle the sweetness. All and all a good recipe that is simple and tasty, but the next time I make it I might sub half milk or another liquid for the syrup... or perhaps use a sugar free syrup. I will try again and let you know!
