I used to work with a friend who made candies.

My favorite were these little Tiger Butter candies, they were like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, only much better. They were white chocolate mixed with peanut butter and topped with milk chocolate. She gave me the recipe years ago and I make them every so often when I get a craving for them. 

I made some in starfish shaped molds for our wedding dinner...we had a destination wedding at the Sandals Halcyon Beach in St.Lucia in a gazebo by the ocean. When we came back home we had a small intimate dinner at our favorite restaurant (Maggiano's) with family and a few close friends. So the starfish tiger butter candies were our "wedding favors" to our guests. Ahh...I'm reliving the feeling of that day, the sun on my face, and my love's hand in mine.

Anyways, I decided I wanted to make a frosting that had those same flavors and the results were spot on! This amazing frosting can go on cupcakes and cakes of all sorts...white cake, chocolate, banana cakes, I could go on and on...heck I'd even dip an apple in it! Give it a try and see what you can pair it with.
