I love indydebi's recipe as well, but some say it's a tad too sweet. so I started replacing some of the powdered sugar with cornstarch. now it's less sweet, and it makes no difference in the texture of the icing.
I've also heard that some people put some extra popcorn salt in it, and that cuts down on the sweetness.
Good luck to you!

I use Sugar-Shack's (Sharon Zambito) recipe. I live in the south where the heat and humidity are awful. My BC holds up well...even for outside weddings!
