For heavy cream use 3/4 cup milk plus 1/3 cup butter.

My mom always just used milk and it worked great.

Some other liquids or juices you might have could work in a cake icing. For instance, orange juice. Try an ingredient search.

You could make chocolate frosting with a bit of cocoa, icing sugar, butter or margarine and a drop or three of Vanilla extract...that will be pretty thick so you can smooth it out with a few drops of milk or other dairy product
