It is of my opinion that this recipe is a GREAT find! It's very easy to put together and the final texture is like whipped cream accept that it is more sturdy and will not liquify as easily. The only suggestion I would make and will use next time is that I will use butter instead of margarine. I found that I could taste the off-taste of the margarine (used Land O'Lake, by the way), therefore I added a bit of butter extract to diverge the taste. Otherwise, it is perfect and a frosting I will make many times. Thank you TeresaS for sharing such a wonderful recipe.
