I use the juice from a can of crushed pineapple then I add some of the crushed pineapple. This makes a wonderful textured frosting that EVERYONE will love! I've used this recipe for years but this is the first time seeing it on Allrecipes.


I made a 13 x 9 cake & knew as written it would be too much frosting, so halved it. it came out nicely, a bit thicker than a glaze, but not one that could be swirled either. Which was fine w/me. The only change I did was add a few drops of lemon extract to "brighten" the flavor. I used it on a carrot cake, to which I had added crushed pineapple. Very tasty together.


I added the lemon extract, Candy Lady, thanks for adding that to the reviews (I was going to do that anyway, lol). I frosted the top of a lemon pound cake and it was awesome. I like the consistency of this frosting, it doesn't run yet it is firm enough for spreading. I will definitely use this again with and without the pineapple juice. In my opinion it's the right amount of each ingredient, for what I was looking for of course. Thanks Candy Lady, after searching hours for a frosting I finally found something right for me.
