As long as you follow the instructions EXACTLY and do not put it onto a warm cake, this will be the most delicious, creamy and addicting icing you will ever make for a baked confection in your life. Everyone I know always asks if I have extra icing, but of course there never is any left! Worth the time and effort. :)
