    I have just made this for my sons birthday cake and I halved the recipe as I did not want a lot left over as I often find with icing recipes. I have popped it in the fridge for the 15 min proving time but it is very runny so I have my fingers crossed…will repost when final result in…better work as I am now out of butter!!!

    Too much milk for a frosting you would want to pipe… but yummy :o )

    Thanks for this recipe. I just made it for my kids to decorate cup cakes in the school holidays. It worked a treat!

    Just made half the recipe. Did a coffee flavour, mixing 4 tsp espresso powder with 1 tsp warm water and added this instead of the milk.
    Used it as a filling for macarons. Perfect!
