I am not crazy about powdered sugar based frosting. It is just too sweet. I tweeked it here and there and this is what I came up with.. A yummy not too sweet spreadable frosting.

This holds up well and stays creamy. It is very basic so to make it your own is very easy.
I think the Cool Whip helps to keep it soft.
