I made this for my wife's birthday cupcakes. It is easy, chocolaty yummy, and very creamy. Easily frosted 20 full-sized cupcakes. As one reviewer suggested, I added a cap-full (about 1 tsp.) of real vanilla, because I think everything tastes better with vanilla. But beware, you can definitely taste the vanilla. So if you don't like vanilla, don't add it. As far as the mayonnaise being the "off" flavor, as one reviewer put it? I wonder if they used real mayonnaise and not miracle whip, which some people think is mayonnaise. I assume the mayo is a quick and easy substitute for egg whites and additional ingredients to fluff up and make the frosting creamier and easier to spread (see Ina Garten's recipe, for example). IMO, the mayonnaise does not add much in flavor to this frosting, just a better texture.
