I love this frosting! Not only does it taste great, it is easy to work with. If it stiffens up on you, you can just beat it again a few times, or whip it aggressively with a spatula or fork.

This is with 3 drops of yellow food coloring added. You can add just a few drops for a light color, or up to a dozen drops for a deeper color. This is great for frosting the entire cake, or for piping to decorate the cake.
