This frosting is pretty as a picture, pretty delicious and tasted pretty much like coconut ice, just in frosting form!
This frosting is so quick and easy to make. I love to serve it atop this Moist Coconut Cake but it’s so verstatile, it would go great with all kinds of cakes and flavour combinations.
I’ve updated the recipe with new pics and new quantities, halving the original ingredients. This recipe yields enough frosting to cover a 22cm round cake with the perfect balance of cake to frosting.
The frosting is easy to work with, dip a small palette knife in hot water to smooth the icing out and then you’re good to go!
