This is my go-to frosting for banana cake, carrot cake, zucchini cake, spice cake and even the occasional chocolate cake. I do have to tell you that you are not saving money on making this frosting over buying a pre-made tub of it, it will cost you more but not so much more that you should avoid it. By making this homemade you avoid the hydrogenated oil and HFC used n making the store bought tub. Plus, it's super easy to make and tastes DELISH!
