the first time i made a BIG mistake. don't repeat my mistake. there is a BIG DIFFERENCE between BUTTER SPREAD (ie PLASTIC TUB BUTTER), MARGARINE, AND STICK BUTTER. the first time i accidentally used "smart and balance" which is BUTTER SPREAD, ie plastic tub butter; DO NOT USE BUTTER IN A PLASTIC TUB (ie country crock, i can't believe it's not butter, etc)- it is like 70% vegetable oil and 10% water, WHICH MEANS your frosting JUST WON'T HOLD. YOU HAVE TO USE STICK BUTTER. IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.SECOND TIME: i used UNSALTED STICK BUTTER. added a pinch of salt, a pinch of almond extract, a little lemon juice, a little lemon zest, used 1 cup of confectioner sugar only, used double the strawberries and reduced it over heat, used half the butter, the other half i used whipped cream cheese and cool whip. refridgerate it overnight to thicken more. i am known to greatly reduce sugar and oil/ butter on recipes. message me here if u tried my version and let me know what u think! thx.
