It's good but a little too sweet!

It was great-even used a cake mix-in Bundt pan. My husband Bob (a real chocoholic) even thought it was good for a change. Thanks!

My mom gave me this recipe, and I had forgotten the ingredients. I searched, and found it here. This is my husbands favorite icing, so I'm so glad I found it. Great with devil's food cake!

Sorry, but this is the most awful frosting ever made. I hate to be mean, but it is TOO sweet to ever eat. I only used half the required amount of Fluff, and didn't want to waste it, so I added some milk, maybe 1/3 c., and half a stick of cream cheese and it turned out pretty amazing. I wanted a white frosting, otherwise I'd suggest adding cocoa powder to make it a chocolate frosting. I definitely do NOT recommend making the above frosting from this recipe though !!!
