I like having a variety of textures and colors.

the title says 16 frosting recipes, but I only see 7 here on this page. Where are the others? The cream cheese frosting, for instance.

It's at the bottom of the article, under the peanut butter frosting picture. It doesn't show photos, just the hyperlinked name to click on. Click on the name and it will take you to the recipe. The cream cheese frosting is at the top of the list.
