mmmm, delicious! I can't stand the idea of shortening, so this was a perfect recipe for me. Yummy and easy. I did use almond extract instead of vanilla, and while I might decide to use vanilla next time, the almond has a nice little flavor to it (maybe too strong, though - also might lessen the almond to half a teasp). Thanks!

This is delicious! I am waiting for the cake to cool and it's really hard to not eat the whole bowl of frosting while I am waiting. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I like this recipe since I prefer not to use shortening, which many buttercream recpies call for. I doubled this recipe and it was enough to frost and decorate 2 13x9 cakes stacked on top of each other.

This is a delicious frosting. I used regular margarine, because that is what I had softened. I am sure it is even better with real butter. I also halved the recipe. It was just sweet enough and nice and easy to spread. I used it for Valentines sugar cookies - pink with Valentines M&Ms.
