A pretty pale pink sweet icing that is not overly saturated with strawberry power.

I'm not giving stars because I may have screwed up. I halved the recipe as I only had cupcakes to frost. I'm not sure if halving the recipe didn't affect the consistency; it just didn't set up and I DID beat it in the KitchenAid for 10 minutes as the directions call for. Tasty, indeed, but wasn't firm enough. I hesitated to keep adding powdered sugar because I don't care for the taste of "over" powdered sugar'ed frostings. But I guess I should have. Thanks for posting. I'll have to try it again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix on med high the stawberry puree, butter, milk, vanilla and 4 cups of powdered sugar for 8-10 minutes (yes, that long! Trust me you will know it if you don't). I use a KitchedAid, it makes it so much easier.
  2. Add the remaining 4 cups of powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until thoroughly mixed.
