Aunt Irene's Frosting
"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."

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.
