Way more than expected, Guest aero_b

As the recipe title suggests, this is a frosting and not an icing. The only problem with that is that it's unlikely anyone will ever need so much frosting (if it were a light and fluffy icing, that would be different). Without hyperbolising, I could cover 10 carrot cakes with this quantity... Tastes good and is very easy though.
