Would make this again.
this was really nice. yes, I will make it again. Whoever doesn't like it,try that browned butter's terrible! And those two cookie bakers who posted their can you NOT like it? it's the best frosting I ever made. Well,there was one wrong thing with it...The vegetable shortening! After my first time making it, i decided to make it with BUTTER, not SHORTENING! 4 stars

I would not make this buttercream icing again, especially with vegetable shortening, that was disgusting. Maybe with butter it would have tasted better. Next time I would go for taste over looks. 1 star

SO Good! I might use a little more heavy cream or add a little butter just to take away some of the sugar taste and get more of a butter taste, but I'm no baker and I'm not sure if the icing will set if I do that. As per this recipe, the icing sets perfectly, I got rave reviews at my work holiday party - this recipe is great!! 5 stars

Obviously the first poster has a few issues. There is nothing wrong with this recipe.

Definitely something for which one needs a large bowl and machine mixer.

Delicious! Didn't understand if the recipe meant that the heavy cream & the food coloring paste were both optional or just the food coloring! I didn't have either, so I just added a little bit of milk & liquid food coloring & it turned out great! Easy to make too! 5 stars
