    The powdered milk gave it an odd flavor - if I make it again I would use less powdered milk but more powdered sugar. - 3/15/13

    It didn't give what I was looking for. Not my favorite, but I may try it again and tweak it a bit. :) - 4/29/11

    I didn't quite like this icing, it was edible, but not the nicest! mine turned out tasting more like the actual cake mixutre - not the icing. Instead I used sweetner, cocoa powder, skimmed milk, water and bit of icing sugar. Still low fat, just a few more calories. - 3/30/11
