Terrible. I'm not sure where the picture came from but my frosting looked nothing like this. The final colour was a pale brown and I had to add food colouring and additional cocoa powder to make it darker. It wasn't very rich or chocolaty. I would not recommend. - 20 Apr 2013


Terrible. Mine came out a pale brown. Wish I had have read the comment above before I bothered. Can't make another so will have to cover the cake with smarties. Lucky its for an 8 year old. - 24 Apr 2015


I made this to the exact instructions bs it came out amazing!! The only thing was it didn't make much and used most of the icing sugar I had but it was still the best I've made - 26 Jul 2015
