  3. Just curious howmuch this made? I am doing a stacked round cake for my sons birthday next week and wondering if I should double this?

  4. Is this supposed to be a weight watchers recipe for frosting all this heavy cream?

  5. Allison says:

    LOVE this icing. It’s not thick like Betty crocker or Duncan hines icing from the store but more a think pourable icing. A little thicker than cake batter consistency.

  6. Could you make this with neuchatel cream cheese?

  7. What a great recipe to use anytime…not just at Christmas. Thx

  8. I made this to put on top of candy corn cupcakes! I used a splash of almond milk and only three cups of powdered sugar and it turned out super yummy! Not to thick… not to thin! Will be making again and again and again!!

  9. Is the sugar powdered sugar?
    Also, if you want to make this so you can pipe it, add some merangue powder to help it hold shape.
