This is a super sweet frosting recipe ideal for a special occasions. It can be used on cakes, cupcakes and anything you think needs some sweetening up.
I have been using this recipe for cakes for many years, I got the recipe from my grandmother. It is a very tasty icing, simple to make, and holds well...as long as the humidity isn't high. It should never be stored in the fridge, either. This icing will turn grainy (sugary) in either extreme. - 27 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is way too sweet to use as a frosting for just an everyday cake. I will find my grandmother's marshmallow frosting recipe to post here. It isn't as sweet. - 19 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Tastes sooo good! My only worry was that it wasn't a great filler between layers of cake - the top tended to slide off the bottom layer. - 26 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
