Questions, Comments & Reviews

Hey Kss, I'm new to the whole frosting thing. I tried your recipe out twice and the first time it was great! I loved the taste! But the second time I made it, the frosting ended up curdling. I don't know if I did anything wrong - I did everything exactly the same as the first time. Could you help me out at all? Also, if I wanted to make it a little thicker (for piping) how would I do that? Thanks
