It is important to use PASTEURIZED eggs for this recipe. You can purchase pasteurized eggs in most grocery stores. If you are unable to find pasteurized eggs, I would not attempt this recipe.
A few things to talk about. The original recipe calls for 2 full pounds of butter and 16 ounces of confectioners sugar. I decreased my version considerably… I only used 1 pound of butter and 8 ounces of confectioners sugar. I found that this amount of ingredients was perfect for my 5 quart KitchenAid and that it was plenty of frosting to cover 24 cupcakes.
