    Really easy and tasty. The better the vanilla essence, the better the result. I used about half the sugar, though, and less butter. Still very nice.  -  12 Dec 2010


    Very nice icing and very easy to make  -  23 Oct 2010


    This makes enough to cover a very large cake. It is very sweet and if/when I make it again I think less sugar more cheese.  -  24 Dec 2013
