I made the frosting, frosted the cake, and ate some within an hour. The bourbon was kind of overpowering, and this is coming from someone who likes bourbon a lot. However, by the next day it had mellowed and was really tasty. Next time I would either try adding less bourbon or making it the day before I was ready to frost the cake. - 08 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is great on carrot cake if you reduce the amount of bourbon. I had to reduce the bourbon to 2T b/c the bourbon was overpowering and the icing became too thin. The icing is still really thin w/ 2T, but the taste more than compensates for the "thinning" look of the icing. - 23 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
