    Great tasting icing - we did not have cream cheese to make traditional icing and this worked very well. Easy for the kids to make as well.  -  25 Jan 2011


    This is one of the best frostings I have EVER had! So delicious! I used it on fresh bananna cake with a vanilla custard filling. Thank you! I think this would also be delicious on a butter cookie or chocolate cake. It's almost like a bannana version of the frosting used for german chocolate cake.  -  13 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This frosting is super delicious! It was easy, but just difficult mixing. I gradually creamed together 2 cups of the sugar with the softened butter and it was stiff instead of light & fluffy. So I blended in the banana and then added the remaining sugar gradually until smooth. It was the perfect topping to the banana cake I found at this site. The coconut made all the difference in giving my cake other flavor than just banana. I will use this recipe again and again. Thank you.  -  09 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
