What brings us joy? Uh, frosting, of course. We’ve rounded up some of the most unique recipes from Best Friends for Frosting to get you started on your path to having some fun with your BFFs.
Funfetti cake batter frosting
The perfect party frosting, this recipe uses funfetti cake mix for its signature color and flavor. Johnson even recommends sprinkling some of the cake on top as an added bonus.
Cotton candy frosting
Cotton candy brought to you in a whole new way. Johnson counts this as one of her favorite frosting recipes. It’s made like a buttercream frosting with an added cotton candy-flavored bonus.
Pop Rocks frosting
This recipe is a must-make, especially if you have kiddos. Of course, little ones aren’t necessary. Grown-ups can enjoy the nostalgia of this frosting creation just as much. And, yes, it crackles as you eat.
Fluffy strawberry buttercream frosting
This is one of the most popular recipes on Best Friends for Frosting, and it’s easy to see why. The color is gorgeous and the flavor is spot-on. Think of strawberry ice cream but in frosting form.
Perfect frosting for ruffle cakes
Johnson calls this recipe “flavorful and functional.” It has the perfect consistency for all your ruffle cake needs while also tasting delicious.
Pumpkin pie frosting
It doesn’t need to be fall in order to enjoy the delights of pumpkin pie. This frosting recipe uses spice and canned pumpkin to get the signature flavor. Oh, and it pairs perfectly with pumpkin spice white mochas for those chilly days.
Cream cheese frosting with pecan maple syrup
No frosting list would be complete without a cream cheese frosting, of course. This recipe may be packed with flavor, but it’s actually pretty simple to make. Johnson pairs the frosting with pumpkin cupcakes and a waffle cone wedge. Yum!
