People, it isn't that serious, it's frosting! Can we stop be ugly and review the frosting? All the other stuff is NOT necessary. That being said, this frosting was fantastic. I've made it twice in two days for my daughters who are Vegans-they were paying $4.00 per cupcake at a bakery, so I made them three dozen. They absolutely LOVED this frosting. I tried it and I was surprised how delicious it was. No problem with the consistency whatsoever. Thank you for sharing with us!
