    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    I was so happy when I made this icing the first time because I knew that I would never need another icing recipe as long as I lived, lol. It was just so light and fluffy, and it still had a very buttery flavor even though it doesn't have any butter in it; probably because of the white chocolate.
