Questions, Comments & Reviews

I would not call the frosting thick, but it does not run all over the place:) You can also adjust it a bit by adding a little more or a little less milk.

Good luck!

is this a thick frosting? or does it stay sticky? I'm looking for something that doesnt ooze al over the place.
