I was told ( I don't remember where) that the COT helps with the drying/crusting of the icing....not sure though. I follow the recipe all the time and have great results. For flavoring, I usually use 3/4tsp of vanilla and 3/4 tsp of butter flavoring and it tastes awesome!TracyLH just turned me on to a site called spices, ect. They sell all kinds of all natural flavorings and I just ordered maple, brown sugar, hazelnut and pumpkin....I can't wait to try those!
