What a great and easy frosting. Very much liked the cream of coconut instead of the texture given by coconut. Like the taste but not the texture. I haven't found anything yet that this was not good on. From cakes and muffins to cookies. Thank you

Yum! Used this with Recipe #43684 with excellent results. One can of Coco Lopez was enough for both recipes. Would be wonderful on a variety of cakes (carrot, pineapple, chocolate, yellow), brownies... my imagination is running wild. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
