    C. Taylor's Note:

    My sister got this buttercream frosting off the box of a Sprinkles Cupcake mix, made famous by Oprah. My sister said this was amazing. Update: I have finally gotten around to making this myself. I will say, that I don't like my desserts overly sweet and. though this was very good, I think I would probably decrease the amount of sugar for my personal taste. I'm glad everyone else has liked it as-is, though. :)

      I made this frosting last week when I was trying to duplicate CakeLove's 44 cupcake. It was delicious and I had rave reviews from my family. I just made the frosting again today and tweaked it to suit my own taste. I thought the frosting was too sweet and difficult to spread, so to fix that I only used 3 cups of powdered sugar, two TBS of half & half (instead of the milk), and I added 1/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar to help stabilize it. Otherwise I followed the directions. It turned out exactly as I wanted it to. I was able to spread it easily and it wasn't too sweet. It would be perfect for the 44 cupcake since that has caramel drizzled over the top. It was just too sweet for me in the original recipe. I love how easy this is to make!

      Excellent!! I halved the recipe and frosted 17 cupcakes with it. I left out the salt and used salted butter. Worked great.

      Never had Sprinkles cupcakes but based on the reviews thought I'd give it a try. This is very yummy! I usually don't even eat frosting and I scrape it off anything that has it cause I don't like that thick greasy feel it leaves in your mouth. These don't do that, they are great texture and flavor - not to mention super easy! I made exactly as directed and added some food coloring to make them pink roses. Thanks for sharing!! UPDATE: Since my first review I've now made this to frost cupcakes several times and love it more each time! Everyone raves when I make these! I like sweet with a little salty taste to it so I use salted sweet cream butter, softened on the counter top, and I use kosher salt where it calls for salt. This pipes on beautifully and just looks great in any color - with or without sprinkles! Thanks again for sharing!
