great recipe, easy, the longer you beat it the stiffer it gets. Very sweet, I was thinking you could probably add lemon juice so it would not be quite so sweet. - 29 Mar 2013
This icing tasted pretty good - warning! Spread the icing as soon as you make it, because it really firmsup. Any attempt to soften it will ruin it. It only took 3 seconds of heat to turn the whoe batch into liquid. - 27 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the most incredible frosing I have ever tasted! I am a huge fan of merangue, so this is a real hit. My whole family LOVED it. My 16 year old brother who doesn't cook, wanted me to show him how to make it so he can whip up a batch in case I'm not around. Whoever came up with this is brilliant!!! - 31 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
