    This recipe is much nicer than the cream cheese frostings so popular now. Tasty, not too sweet, buttery rich, spreads & looks beautiful and holds up at room temperature well. Good stuff. Like a super rich, extra thick pudding on butter steroids.

    I can highly recommend it from personal experience! It is a keeper.
