Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful This is the worst recipe I have ever tried with trivia. Got the recipe done and it tasted like straight old fashion saccharine! I had to keep adding stuff to it to try to get that taste out of my mouth. I wasted a lot of money and a lot of time making this trip you should be ashamed of themselves and I should quit publishing this recipe. The other problem was at the end of the recipe it says add powdered sugar what? It’s supposed to be sugar-free remember?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disgusting I made this to put on cupcakes and its disgusting. Trivia has a very strong chemical taste and there is no way around it. If this is the best Trivia can do then eat a little of the real thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs help! In a separate bowl I mixed an extra 2 tbsps of cream with 2 tbsp of flour then added to frosting, also added an extra 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract! This will tone down the butter tastes and weirdness that it's not real sugar

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vanilla Buttercream It was awful. I would rather not have cake than to have to eat this buttercream.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely disgusting. If all frosting tasted this bad, nobody would eat it. Would give zero stars if possible.
