    This frosting was just the perfect topping for my peanut butter cupcakes. I only added 4 tbsp of jelly just to add so the cupcakes weren’t too strong. I also had to make my powered sugar but it was amazing!

    Excellent taste, only had to add in one more tablespoon of milk to get the thickness I wanted. Topped the cupcakes perfectly

    Very tasty. I randomly started cutting the recipe in half because i only had a pound of sugar. if i wouldve used the normal amounts, it would have made ALOT of frosting

    It turned out to be more like an icing, and was very heavy.

    Very smooth and not heavy at all. I added a bit of salt to mine, but everything else just like the recipe, turned out great.

    It is very delicious. the only issue I found was the mixture is so stiff it is hard to pipe. Next time I will add more milk.
