    I didn't care for this at all...Really wasn't fluffy? I did only have skim milk so possibly that could have been the reason. <br/><br/>I ended up leaving on the side of the cake and not icing with it and let my kids/and others use if they wanted or not use. Just not a favorite.

    This was very good. I made a half batch and it worked out great to put just a thin layer of frosting on a pan of brownies I made. I plan on using it again this weekend. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

    Bummer. I put this on my birthday cake, but didn't care for the taste or texture. It is similar to the type that comes on inexpensive cakes from the supermarket, if you are keen on that type. I guess I like a creamy, not fluffy texture.
