Has anyone made the apple juce cream cheese frosting recipe from the Super Baby Foods book or the What to Expect the First Year book? (they are the same recipe)<br><br>
If so, my question is, did you end up with a bunch of black flecks from the chopped raisons? And if not, how did you chop the raisins fine enough?<br><br>
I'm making carrot cake with this frosting for brthday cakes. I'm wondering if it would be sweet enough (for the adult guests, I'm sure the babies won't mind) without the raisons?<br><br>
Anyone have any ideas/ info?

I make cream juice frosting by just mixing in apple juice concentrate or maple syrup. You don't need the raisins at all, it's sweet enough without it.<br><br>
Another way to make frosting that is awesome on carrot cake is to puree or beat cream cheese with crushed pineapple - yummy and just sweet enough!<br><br>
One more option is to use golden raisins instead of regular, that would look better because there will be little chunks.
