Try Indydebi's or Sugarshack's recipe. They have a better flavor/texture than the Wilton recipe. Some people like the Swiss or Italian meringue recipes.

i use indydebi's but....

1) i cream all the liquids and fats together for at least 15 to 20 minutes before adding the powdered sugar.

2) after adding the PS, I let my KA run on "2" for at least 15 to 20 min. (and sometimes give it 5 min or so at "4"

light and fluffy every time!
