"This nice icing keeps its shape. It's great for piping on cut-out cookies, yet stiff enough for making flowers. It may be too sugary to mound up on cupcakes, unless of course you have a strong sweet tooth! I like using pure bourbon vanilla extract in this." — dreaming*vegan

I doubled this recipe, used 6.5 cups of powdered sugar, subbed almond milk for the soy & added 1/2 tsp imitation butter flavoring- REALLY GOOD! Used it on cupcakes for my kids birthday & no one knew it was vegan. I'll definitely use it again!
It was too thick,too sugary,and wasn't very creamy. I choose this recipe because I am lactose intolerant,but after tasting this,I think I'll take the chance with regular icing.
Just bad. I ended up throwing a majority of it away then adding flour and soy milk to it. Really the confectioners sugar is too too much, it only needs about 1/4 of what the recipe calls for.
oh my god! so gross, i refuse to rate it!
Easy to mix, but not too tasty! Both of my children would not eat this, even on top of a chocolate cupcake. The consistency was too whipped-I couldn't top my cupcakes, it kept running-I even added more sugar and tried to tweak it, but to no avail. I globbed it on the cupcake, but still did not like it! I will keep looking...
When I changed 12 to 4 servings, it was good and easy to decorate with and on the thicker side of creamy which was helpful when decorating, but it was sugary. Then when I did the full 12 servings like the original recipe called for the frosting was gooey and kept separating no matter how much more sugar I put in it. I thought that was weird. But I loved it the first time i did it.
This is a very good recipe...if you are going to do a gingerbread house that is not going to be eaten. i agree with everyone, there is just to much powdered sugar. I use this sometimes, but not on cupcakes, defiantly not.
It whipped up beautifully in the proportions listed here, with absolutely no trouble at all. I used it on the "Vegan Chocolate Cake" recipe found on allrecipes and it was a HIT-both times I made it. My vegan co-workers raved and raved about it.
