whenever a frosting separates for me, I generally just keep adding powdered sugar and whipping the crap out of it. With this one, I actually ran out of powdered sugar (which I knew I would so I had already halved the recipe) but then I added some soy milk flour which really got it to a nice consistency (I use NOW FOODS brand). The almond extract was really overwhelming, which I anticipated so I did half vanilla but it was still a little too almond-y. Next time I would just use vanilla. I maybe also used way more spices, because I wanted to hide the almond more, didn't work but I don't think you can have too much spice in a pumpkin spice recipe.

I was so excited for this frosting recipe to work, but I have been met with failure the two times I tried. Have you had anyone else mention that the frosting didn't turn out for them? I tried it twice, but both times the frosting separated, and became oily and weird-looking. Also, I found the almond extract to be so overpowering (read: I felt ill from the strong smell and taste), so the second time I left it out. I think without the almond extract, it would have been excellent, but again the separation occurred... any idea what I'm doing wrong?
