    I cut the recipe in half. Consistency was smooth, but a little loose. More sugar!

    It’s easy enough for this beginner, but the butter was lumpy, just wouldn’t smooth out, and very very sweet.

    It was very good but also pretty sweet I would definitely cut back on the powdered sugar just a little.

    It’s VERY buttery. I would make it again though.

    It was just what I expected and spread well on my cake with little to no problems. 9/10 I am going to make this again.

    Separated and ran down the cake all over the place. I've never had that happen.
