Reply Help with butter cream!

Vee ...

Oh, thank you so very much! I thought about it, and looked back on what I was doing, and I think you are right about the sugar. I’ve been trying to not make it so sweet, like a store bought kind, so that is probably an issue. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard that people do not want a ‘sickeningly sweet’ (as we all say here) cake, like store bought ones, so I might have freaked out a bit, lol! And I also went from whisking all the frosting by hand, to an electric hand mixer that I’m not used to, so another issue I’m going to work on. I’ll have to try the heavy cream, I’ve only used milk, and 2% too. Thanks so much again for responding!
