I used this to frost coconut cupcakes. I was delicious. It had been a long time since I have had anything with this type of icing. I am not sure what the correct culinary term is, but this Is an excellent change from a traditional butter cream. It was so easy to make and so easy to spread. I used half and half instead of evaporated milk and that worked just fine. This is for the real coconut lover.

Although the directions are different, the ingredient list is the same as the recipe in my Betty Crocker cookbook. I made it for the first time yesterday and it was AMAZING. I'm fighting the urge to make more!
