    Very cool. I'll have to try this on Halloween.

  • Glora Frank

    Your butter cream frosting recipe says 2 sticks of butter. Would that be 1/2 pound of butter? I use half sticks of butter.

  • Andress Blackwell

    Hello Glora... yes, you're correct. Two whole sticks of butter for a total of 8oz (4oz per stick).Hope this helps!

  • Lis Nash

    What could you sub for whipping cream if dairy free?

    • Swerve

      Hi Lis, Have you ever tried full fat canned coconut milk? We've heard it's a good substitute! We will try it out in our test kitchen soon :)

  • Jessica

    does it have to be refridgerated when done?

    • Swerve

      Hi Jessica! That is a good question. You do not have to refrigerate this recipe. However, if you choose to refrigerate them make sure you take them out 20 minutes before serving. Stay sweet :)

  • Anna Miles

    Ok, so I feel dumb for asking this, but this CAN be used on a cake right? I'm making a sugar free sheet cake and can't find any good sugar free frostings out there, thanks.

    • Swerve

      Hi Anna, yes you can using this frosting for a cake!
