Also great on gingerbread cookies.
I have also used this instead of traditional Cream Cheese Frosting on Carrot Cake. Just spread between cake layers ~ it will not "frost" the sides of the cake.
That sounds great.
I've been looking for eating pumpkins, but so far the stores only have the super hard carving ones. :'(
