Freezer Frosting

"It's handy to have this sweet creamy frosting in the freezer when you need to decorate a cake or cupcakes. Just thaw in the fridge and spread. 'It's easy to tint with food coloring for a special look,' assures Evelyn Comeau of Virden, Manitoba."

Super sweet, I am thinking the whipping cream should be whipped first & then added into the mix.

Eliminate 1 1/2 cups of sugar, if you don't like it sooo sweet. It's a very and fluffy and light frosting.

I used this frosting for my daughter's birthday cake and it worked great!
