This frosting recipe was pretty terrible. It was so runny I had to add an additional 12 oz of cream cheese as well as double the powdered sugar. Even after those additions it still wasn't to a consistency that could be used as frosting. It also tasted nothing like coconut so I had to add coconut extract. I ended up scrapping it and using my tried and true cream cheese recipe, replacing the milk with pineapple juice, vanilla with coconut extract and pecans with toasted coconut. I wouldn't recommend this recipe for frosting. I decided it might be good as a fruit salad base so maybe I will use it for that....
I added about 1/2 c. fresh coconut to the mix for added texture and taste. It came out great! I made to top Grammie Bea's Double Raisin Cake. It was a great combination, and I know this frosting will be good on lots of other cakes in the future. Thanks for the post! Alexa
Made for Photo Tag Spring 08 This frosting did double-duty as frosting and dip.I used store-bought shortcake base and filled the indentation with frosting and served a bowl of strawberries beside.My family loved dipping the extra berries in the frosting and getting to eat the cake base at the end.
Rita, I thought this was wonderful. I made pineapple muffins and served this with them. I really enjoyed it, thank you for the recipe.
Rita, this was fantastic! I made this recipe, cutting the ingredients in half, as a dip for strawberries. For something so simple and easy, with so few ingredients, this was delicious. The flavor of the pineapple and coconut was very subtle and complimented the fresh berries. The dip had just the right amount of sweetness. I had about half of it left, so I'm going back to the store for more fruit to finish it off! I can't wait to try this as a frosting for cakes. Thanks bunches for sharing this recipe!
