Tried it on a chocolate cake with strawberry filling. Sprinkled some Crushed nuts on top. The customer loved it. I've now added it to my gormet cupcake list. Banana split cupcakes!! If you like you can also add some pineapple ice cream topping.
So I just made this icing today, and my icing is not "fluffy" at all. :( It's more like thick glue. It's not a total disaster since I plan on using this as a filling ,but any thoughts as to what I did wrong? I mashed the bananas super well... until they were pretty much liquid. Did I mash them up too much? Maybe I beat it too fast while adding the powdered sugar?
