    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 was good!! I added more vanilla, some cocoa powder, and some cinnamon and that seemed to add a bit more flavor :)

    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.

    Too much sugar in the taste

    I've made this for years, it helps if the milk is heated just a little and then added a spoonful at a time. Also I quite often use 1 tsp.almond flavouring along with 1 tsp. vanilla, (not 1 tablespoon, I think that would be overpowering.)
