    A very nice but sweet icing and it wouldn't go into stiff peaks it was much softer than that. I put it on top of a chocolate cake. I would make it again  -  12 May 2011


    Really yummy and different - a big hit with all my friends! I usually half the quantities though as it makes a lot  -  05 Feb 2011


    This was a big hit with everyone, very tasty and perfect for cupcakes, one of my favourites. The mixture does make a lot and it will form stiff peaks if you continue to beat.  -  23 Jan 2014
