Very easy, light and delicious, not overly sweet. I was concerned it was too thin but folding in the whipped cream made the consistency perfect. I did add some dry, instant jello to pink it up and boost the strawberry flavor, maybe 1/3 cup. I made a four layer nine inch round cake so I did double the recipe. This will be my go to for strawberry icing. Read More

I was looking for a frosting with less sugar than the usual 3 cups. This one turned out wonderful. The only modification I made was to put the puree in a small sauce pan and reduce it by half. Then added the full amount just to give it a little more flavor. Read More
