how do you make coconut pecan frosting

Coming across a number of recipes that do not match the picture. Example peanut butter frosting comes up as chocolate ganache. Would have really liked the peanut butter icing recipe. Fm

Hi there! Thank you for pointing this out. We have gone ahead and fixed the error on the page. Enjoy all the frostings! :)

Is there any frosting can do without sugar? For those frosting using whipped cream will it melt at room temp or after keep a few days in the fridge?

Hi there! We do not currently have any frosting recipes that are made without sugar. However, we have seen sugar-free frostings available at the grocery store. Any frosting that uses whipped cream will melt at room temperature and should always be refrigerated.

You can make sugar free frosting using sugar free instant pudding.

Hi , I love making this frosting. I some times add 2 to 3 tablespoons of peanut butter to make peanut better frosting or chocolate peanut butter frosting. Oooo so good, & easy too.

my daughter is sooo fond of the new Hershey chocolate almond spread, she uses that for icing this cake, & tops it with toasted slivered almonds. that is also delish! however I nreally prefer the Nutella spread. both can be finished up and ready for any dinner in an hour.. one of my very favorite take alongs.
