I searched for an easy frosting for coconut cake. I had so much to do for Christmas Eve dinner I needed uncomplicated recipes. I made a sheet cake and cut it to form a snowman for a festive touch. I didn't measure coconut flakes. I added a little bit since I didn't want to make the frosting of cut cake edges to be difficult and then sprinkled flakes on cake once done. I was blown away at how good this frosting tasted and its ease of spreading it on the cake. This will certainly be a go to recipe going forward. I love it!!! So much so, this is my first recipe review and I've gotten a lot of recipes online.

I made this frosting today and followed the suggestions of the previous comment for using cream of coconut instead of milk. It tasted fine, but didn't quite give the coconutty flavour I was looking for. Might try coconut extract next time. Again, it made way more than would fit on a 9 x 13 cake, which was fine because then I had extra to put on my graham crackers. Nonetheless, it was a delicious cream cheese frosting.

This recipe is very good but makes way too much frosting. I only used 2/3 of it on the coconut sheet cake.
Also instead of the 3 T milk, I used 2 T of the cream of coconut from the cake recipe and I did not mix the coconut into the frosting, but sprinkled it on top.
