This was very easy to make and pretty easy to work with I thought (I have never worked with or tasted fondant type icing before). It didn't taste like buttercream to me; more of a corn syrup taste. I prefer the taste of regular buttercream. This would be good to use in addition to buttercream icing! All in all my daughter and I (she is 4) had a great time forming the icing into different shapes and making our cupcakes pretty!!! If you want a pretty cake or cupcakes this is the way to go; for taste, I would just do a plain ol' buttercream frosting! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)
I love to use this over fondant, gives the cake and cookies a better taste. Very easy to use and make.
