Over the last two months, specific food boards have gone viral on social media sites. Phil and I have chatted about butter boards and cream cheese boards, and now there’s a new type of board: frosting boards.

We all get our fair share of sugar during the holidays but frosting boards are here to ramp up your intake! According to the website Crazy For Crust, frosting boards are the newest trend in charcuterie boards! Sweeter than a butter board, it’s the perfect easy party dessert. You can make frosting boards in fun colors and shapes. I’ll admit that they are very festive.

Once you have a frosting board made, you need something to go with it. The video I saw on Instagram used Christmas cookies. You could also use fruit or some type of sweet roll or pastry. You can decorate the frosting board with candies and/or sprinkles to make it fun. Kids will love these!  And they’ll also be an eye-catcher if you’re having a holiday party. They’re definitely pretty.
