SO HOW'D IT GO?

Very creamy and fluffy. I mixed in 1/2 bag of melted chocolate chips and 1 chocolate bar to make chocolate icing.

I'm going to try this today to frost a mini muffin version of the vegan Mango Coconut Cake.  What about using coconut cream instead of coconut milk?

Coconut icing is the best! For ultimate coconut flavor I recommend adding a little coconut oil, and shredded coconut as well. This makes the icing supppper delicious.  :>

This frosting is good, but there's not enough coconut flavor.  I reccomend putting coconut shreds in it, and only using coconut extract and not vanilla.  I put a whole extra teaspoon in and it still is hardly coconutty.

The directions don't say when to add the sugar. :(

I added sugar after I finished the mixing in the coconut milk & extract step.  :)

I was very pleased with this recipe.  It was nice & thick & fluffy.  I did not have coconut extract so I used vanilla.  Just in case anyone is wondering, it will not have a coconut flavor unless you use coconut extract.  The coconut milk alone,  does not add a coconut flavor to the frosting.  I added some shredded unsweetened coconut to the frosting & frosted the Carrot & Nothing Else Cake http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=13696.0 from this site.  I will definitely use this recipe again - thanks for posting!
