This is definitely the best frosting I've come across so far ... I boiled, as per recipe, and I must say that I have had too too many spoonfuls before I even got to ice the cake!

Yummmy :)  Thanks to the original poster


It was my first time making frosting and it turned out great. I modified it a bit - didn't add any of the extracts and added some vanilla sugar. Oh yeah, about the sugar - I was so scared of the "1 lb" thingie that only added 2-3 tablespoons of it and the frosting was still a bit too sweet. Either way, I could eat it on its own - it's almost like melted chocolate I used to enjoy earlier :}.


My 1st thought was...oil...yuck.  But i was looking for something quick and easy. I didnt boil and blended it together.  I used more than 6 tablespoons of milk.  It was really good though and super easy.  I might put the sugar in my coffee grinder cause I could taste the sugar particles even after blending. I didn't use any extract.  I also used under a cup of sugar and it was very sweet and I have a major sweet tooth.  I am actually super hyper after eating this with chocoalte cake cause I havent had any processed sugar in months! I might be up all night  :D


The easiest frosting recipe EVER vegan or not! I just mixed by hand and didn't boil. I added about 3 T peanut butter at the end mostly to stiffen it up a bit more.

I didn't boil the wet ingredients, I just mixed it all together and I must say, this is an awesome frosting recipe!  I've tried lots of frosting recipes and the vegan versions are usually thin and runny, but this one was exactly like a store bought frosting.  I did go ahead and use the suggested pound (4 cups) of powdered sugar, it worked great.
