    Looking for paleo frosting help

    Hello,

    A family birthday is coming up soon and I want to make an alternative to the cake that everyone else will be eating. In general I don't agree with replacing SAD sweets with paleo sweets, but I'm making an exception for my grandfather's 88th birthday! I need help with the frosting! I'm looking for something that:

    - uses either coconut milk or cream cheese (or both) as the base (rather than coconut or other shortening).
    - can be frozen after icing the cake and won't turn inedible
    - uses minimal sweetener
    - is white (not chocolate or other flavors... so my cake looks like everyone else's cake!)

    Thank you for your help!

    PS For the cake I was thinking of using this recipe (Paleo Chocolate Birthday Cake)


    2/3 cup coconut flour
    1/2 cup high quality cacao powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt
    6 eggs
    1/2 cup coconut oil (butter or ghee), melted (more for greasing pans) [I plan on using butter]
    3/4 cup maple syrup [I plan to reduce this amount]
    1/2 cup brewed coffee (or water)
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    parchment paper for lining cake pans
