Luscious, creamy frosting that doesn't taste too sweet. This frosting is delicious on any cake, but I especially like it on coconut cake, sprinkled generously with coconut between layers and on top of cake.

  • Once cold, beat until smooth and fluffy.

  • Whip the cream into soft peaks and fold it into the frosting. Makes enough to frost one 8 or 9 inch layer cake.

Maybe the frosting tastes good with coconuts on it but not on its own. The consistency was more like a mushy heavy custard than the light frosting I was looking for. Read More

This was very tasty. However I used Cool Whip instead of heavy whipping cream. This made the recipe easier. I frosted a coconut pound cake rather than a layer cake. It received raved reviews at a covered dish party. Read More
