This recipe tasted awesome! Love it! I halved the recipe for a batch of chocolate cupcakes, which was just enough for 18 cupcakes. But next time, I don't think I will half the recipe, because it was so good, I want to add a huge mound of icing on each cake. This was not too sweet and it had a great flavor. When I bake, I always "substitute" healthier ingredients. So I did use whole wheat pastry flour and sucanat with honey (which I ran through a coffee grinder, that has never had coffee in it, to get a finer sugar - closer to confectioners). This was great with the healthier substitutions. Will be making this again today and will try adding a twist with strawberries to get a strawberry icing. Hope it turns out just as good!
***UPDATE*** I did make this icing by adding strawberries, delish! I divided the icing into 3 parts, one part stayed the white vanilla (as the recipe), second part I whipped in 1 Tlb. of cocoa for chocolate icing, the third part, I added about 1-2 Tlb. of pureed strawberries (strawberries had sugar on them, left over from shortcake). Then I iced cupcakes and had 3 different icings. These were great! BTW - this recipe "Simple White Cake" from this site makes excellent white cupcakes.
