Great icing for kids, and so easy! I halved the recipe & used it on one 9x9 inch white cake (the "Simple White Cake" from this Web site). Perfect! Thanks for the recipe!

I could not get this receipe to thicken up. I ended up using about a box and 1/4 of powdered sugar, and it was still runny. At that point, even if it had thickened, it was now way to sweet.

i'd recommend putting the bananas through a food strainer -- it removes the black specks and improves the overall appearance.

Used this on the A-Number-1 Banana Cake on this site. Delicious!

Simply delicious! Went great with the banana cake recipe.
