Wonderful light whipped cream icing. Not sweet sweet like traditional but you can adjust how sweet by adding a bit more sugar.. It's a bit sturdier with the added cornstarch over just whipped cream.. Does not affect the flavor. Still needs to be refrigerated but holds up very well. If flavoring add flavor when you add the sugar
