      I was a little concerned about trying this recipe after reading the reviews but needed to whip up a strawberry frosting for my nephew's birthday cake and I didn't have any decent fresh strawberries. So I decided to give this a chance. I'm glad I did. I didn't have the "tastes like butter" issues of one of the previous reviewers although, on tasting after the first set of ingredients were mixed, I did decide to add in an extra 1/4 cup of strawberry preserves for a little extra strawberry oomph. This may be why I didn't have any seeming issues with the frosting being stiff either. Added a bit of red food coloring for pretty and I was pleased. All in all, a tasty frosting that, from my stolen nibble, seems to go quite well with my chocolate cake.

      This was a totally gross, tasted like eating a stick of butter, could barely taste the jam at all, yuck is all I have to say... better luck with yours.

      This was a very good frosting. It whips up like a real buttercream without all the work! It was slightly stiffer than an ordinary buttercream. I may omit the powdered sugar next time. This frosting got many complements at the office. It makes a cupcake taste like a strawberry shortcake.
