As a follow up to my Orange Cake recipe, this is my basic vanilla icing recipe. There are several variations, all of which I have tried at one point or another depending the people for whom I was baking and their dietary restrictions/allergies.
In a large bowl mix together with a hand mixer:
- 2 cups icing sugar
- 4 tbsp vegan margarine (or substitute one of the following: butter, shortening, canola oil or other oil)
- 2 to 4 tbsp coconut milk (or substitute one of the following: milk, rice milk, soy milk, water, juice, maple syrup or coffee)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp salt
Add more icing sugar or liquid to adjust the consistency.
