This is it! The classic powdered sugar icing you seek for your prettiest Christmas cookie recipes and to drizzle over your favorite cakes. When you don't want or need heavy-duty buttercream a powdered sugar frosting adds just a bit more sweetness without going too far.

I followed the recipe to the tea! And it tasted disgusting and too much like powder sugar. At first it was too thick and I had to add more milk. Very disappointing!!!!!
