Good basic icing recipe, set well on gingerbread cookies. Runny enough for effective decorating! - 25 Dec 2009
I made this and it was really nice, although I only have whole cloves, I crushed around 4,and added a lid's worth of Orange essence. I wouldn't say it was a thick consistency as is described in the title. - 24 Oct 2016
Terrific frosting recipe! It tasted delicious on my gingerbread cookies and when dried, it wasn't at all sticky or tacky~just a great consistency. Thank you for a wonderful frosting recipe! =) - 12 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
