I made these for a party yesterday and they were a HIT! I received so many compliments and people were even taking pictures of them. Any recipe that calls for an entire pound of sugar for the frosting is obviously going to be extremely sweet.. so I only used ablout 2 1/2 of the 4 cups the recipe calls for. That was also with doubling the shortening and butter amounts because when I put in 1/2 cup of each like the recipe calls for, it barely looked like enough frosting to ice more than 5 or 6 cupcakes which I thought was odd. So I would definitely recommend doubling the recipe!
