I have used this frosting on my grandmother's carrot cake for 40 years. It is a not-too-sweet frosting that freezes well. So make a double batch. This is a MUST try frosting. You will NOT be disappointed, I promise!! Only ½ cup sugar in the entire batch, makes this a healthier alternative frosting.
