Make it per the directions, or add drained crushed pineapple for a different, but fun texture!
The recipe makes frosting that’s light and creamy, perfect for yellow cake, 7-Up cake, pound cake, and more!
We recommend this frosting on Pina Colada Cupcakes.
Fun Fact: The pineapple “fruit” is not really a fruit at all but is a mass of individual berries fused to the central stalk.
This is why the “fruit” has leaves on top.
They are actually the continued growth of the stalk beyond where the berries are attached.
Pineapples are not grown from seed.
This pineapple frosting won’t have much color.
If you want to add color, a few drops of food coloring will do ya!
We’ve added rum to ours to accompany our pina-colada cupcakes, however, it’s booze is optional.
If you want it thicker, add more powdered sugar.
If you want it thicker, but not sweeter, use cornstarch–only up to 2 Tablespoons.
If you want it thicker after adding the 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch, you’ll need to add more powdered sugar.
