Now this is what frosting is supposed to taste like! This reminded me of the frosting I ate on cakes from a professional bakery.

This was one of my favorite recipes but I will say it was a little too buttery but that's an easy fix! Make sure to add the vanilla or else it won't taste as good. Add a little extra sugar too and it will be amazing!

the frosting was okay, but it wasn't good for my cupcakes .. it was runny and did not sit on my cupcakes

We made 24 cupcakes and it yealded WAY too much. If you do this recipie, cut down the sugar by about three cups. It was very rich and way too sweet. It gave everyone a headache, and a few of us couldn't even finish our cupcakes. I would change this recipie by cutting down the sugar by A LOT, adding some lemon juice, and adding a lot more milk than the recipie called for.

I'm huge fan of the thickness, the lightness of this buttercream! It is so handy to have reviews and share this recipe online. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe!

This is a good, easy frosting. I also used 3 cups of sugar and felt that it was the right amount of sweetness. I will make this again! Thanks!

It's a buttercream, so - it's going to taste very sugary and buttery. (People who are complaining about that need to find another type of frosting to make!) It had a nice flavor, and I followed the directions to beat for several minutes - you need to use an electric mixer - so it came out very soft and fluffy, fairly easy to work with and spread on a cake. All in all, everyone liked it, but I wouldn't say it blew my mind.

This recipe turned out just as I wanted. Cut sugar to 3 C., with milk it was 2 1/2 Tbsp, 1/8 tsp cream of tarter. 3/4 tsp Mexican vanilla and 1/4 tsp rum flavoring. This on any flavor of cake works great.
