I loved this recipe Northen Reflectionz. It was quick and easy to make. Best of all I didn't have to stand over a hot stove for 7 minutes while beating, like my mom use too, all I did was place everything in the Kitchen Aid and away we went...I did beat it for 9 minutes to get the texture I was looking for. Awesome recipe, it tasted fantastic, was light and fluffy with great flavor. Thanks for sharing this outstanding recipe, which I will make again.
I LOVE this recipe!! I have been making 7 minute frosting on the stove for years. Even though it is one of my favorite frostings, it can be a real pain to make. I tried this recipe and it worked beautifully the first time! Since it doesn't require cooking, I could use my stand mixer. That freed me up to do other things, and in 7 minutes the frosting was perfect! Thank you sooo much for sharing - I will never COOK 7 minute frosting again!
This recipe failed completely. I don't know what I did wrong. I don't think I will use this again.
