Top Review by Edesia

This frosting is amazing. It was my first time making frosting from scratch and it turned out perfectly. I used 2 packets of Starbucks Via because that's what I had on hand. I almost didn't get to frost my cake because I couldn't stop eating the frosting with spoon after I had made it! I will probably never buy canned frosting again. Thanks for posting!
