Really good and simple frosting to make. Pureed and strained the raspberries as another commenter suggested, but could have used a bit of raspberry extract or liquor to help with taste. Had no problem piping onto cupcakes, just keep adding sugar until it's stiff!

Taste was good, but not pipeable AT ALL. It was good for spreading, that;s it

Amazing! Though i didn't have all of the 'exact' ingredients the recipe suggested, i improvised and it still turned out brilliant. I used frozen raspberries instead of fresh, "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!" instead of regular butter, sea salt instead of table salt, and vanilla imitation instead of normal vanilla extract. I used powdered sugar as it said on the ingredients though. But it's really good and i know i'll be using more often in the future now!

This recipe floored me once I tasted it! did puree and strain the raspberries before adding them, and I also added 1 tsp of raspberry liqueur for added taste! Perfect! ^_^
