This frosting is so light and creamy! It goes especially well with a chocolate cake. This can also be used as a very light filling!

I loved how easy this was. I made it for my husbands birthday cake and it was awesome! I left out the rum and added vanilla and I think maybe cutting down on the milk maybe to 3/4 cup or maybe 1/2 cup. I would like it a little thicker. But overall it was real tasty! Read More

Well it tasted great but much to runny. I dont have a food processor I used a hand mixer and still couldn't get it thick. I think like the other lady the milk should be cut down to 1/2 cup.I have another recipe that calls for a 12 oz tub of cool whip with only 1/2 cup milk and 3 oz cream chease and 1 pudding mix. So how does this one get a full cup of milk? I'll keep working on it because it did taste good. Kept it in the fridge overnight so it wouldn't run. and it was ok then. Read More

I used this recipe to top my son's cupcakes for his second birthday. I cut the milk in half as suggested and left out the rum using about 2 teaspoons of vanilla instead. I also refrigerated the frosting until right before serving so it would remain thick enough not to slide off the cupcakes. My husband loved the frosting as did my son. Read More

Tastes like banana cream pie!! I was so glad to have found this recipe since all other frosting/icing recipes called for confectioners sugar which I didn't have at the time. I used it on the Banana Cake II recipe to which I added chocolate chips and it was wonderful! Tips: I used rum extract instead of straight rum. A large wisk makes "folding in" very easy. Quick and easy to make. Thanks Cyndi! Read More

I used others people's suggestions and cut back on the amount of milk and the frosting came out perfect!!!! It's light and airy and full of banana flavor. I am using this frosting on my banana cake recipe I can not wait to try it on my cake.(I always make my cakes the day before and let the ingredients settle before adding my filling) This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you so much for sharing such an easy great tasting recipe. My only regret is that I can not give it more stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read More

It's got a nice mild banana flavor. Not authentic banana since most of its flavor comes from the pudding mix but it's nice nonetheless. Reducing the milk by half it still wasn't quite as thick as most people would want. Combine the liquid ingredients (milk/rum) last and add as much as you need to get the consistency you need.

A good choice if you're looking for a whipped cream-based frosting with a banana undertone. I was surprised how subtle the banana was conidering the banana pudding and mashed fresh banana in the recipe. The frozen whipped topping really cut the banana flavor which I personally liked. Read More

This is a great little recipe if you want a quick simple frosting/filling. I added sliced bananas to the middle of a devil's food chocolate cake along with this filling turned out great. It doesn't make the prettiest cake just the tastiest! Read More

This was very easy and turned out better than I expected. I was using this to frost cupcakes and was worried about it being too runny. I made this about 8 hours before frosting the cupcakes and I let it sit in the fridge to thicken. I didn't have any rum so I used a little rum extract instead. It turned out to be a creamy frosting with lots of banana flavor and it didn't run off my cupcakes. Read More
