Lime Cool Whip Frosting

Yesterday I mentioned the lime cool whip frosting that pairs perfectly with the coconut cake I made. The frosting is really easy to make and I am pretty sure it is good on other types of cakes too!  

What you will need:
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
5 cups of powdered sugar
1 8oz container of cool whip

Of course, this wouldn't be a Paula Deen recipe without the BUTTER!  Chop up your butter to help it soften a little quicker.

Zest your lime. 

Squeeeeeeze the limes.

Now combine your butter, zest, and lime juice in a bowl and mix well with a mixer.

Slowly add in your powdered sugar and mix till smooth.  Last step is to add the cool whip and combine.

The icing is a little sticky and doesn't hold shape really well.  So if you want to pipe the frosting onto a cupcake, you might be a little disappointed.  Instead, go for something simple and pile shaved coconut on top of the icing.  Super cute and enjoyed by all.
