    A bit on the semisweet side but otherwise great. Btw for my fellow blonde bakers- this is confectioners sugar. Not regular cane sugar.

    It tasted DELICIOUS, but it was a tiny bit grainy and I had to add a lot more milk in to get the right consistency

    It turned out amazing! I used Giradeli chocolate powder and it tasted like a half moon cookie. I love it.

    This was easy to make and delicious! Spread very well over the soft cake I had made, without being so stiff that it pulled the cake apart.

    Turned out great! I only used 4 tablespoons of milk since others complained about it being runny. It had a great texture
