    I was searching the internet for a good recipe and I found it here today! I needed something different for my poppy seed cake and decided to try this sour cream frosting and it was just delicious. This is definately a keeper.  -  12 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is the best frosting Ive ever tasted. I like it better than cream cheese frosting and I will definetely make this again. Some people said this is more like a sauce than a frosing, but mine was more like frosting, so I don't know what they did wrong.  -  22 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought this was perfect. I didn't think it was too thin, like other reviewers commented. The flavor was great. It was reminiscent of cream cheese frosting. Very good and very versatile.  -  01 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
