Wow, I've just made this for my daughters birthday cake and it's so light but really indulgent. I was a bit worried as it seemed quite tricky but its actually not too hard. - 23 Sep 2012

Seriously good icing! Been making ordinary butter cream for 40+ years and this beats all. Rich and creamy but at the same time light and fluffy. - 07 Mar 2014
