Recipe by LenoreRockchild
"This is a rich, caramely buttercream frosting, which pairs perfectly with a simple chocolate cake, or frost an apple cake for a sweet Autumn treat. This icing can also be made with standard ingredients such as milk and butter. It makes enough to frost one two-inch layer cake, or 24 cupcakes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Quite unexpectedly good for a vegan recipe. I made this to top some vegan chocolate cupcakes for some friends of mine that don't consume animal products. My only critique would be that it seemed a little oily/greasy, so perhaps cutting the margarine content to less than 1/2 cup would yield a better consistency. Taste is excellent, however, the texture is the only problem I am having. Also, I am refrigerating the frosting to see if it yields a less greasy result after cooling completely.
tastse good But this is an icing! not frosting!
I made this to go along with a vegan chocolate cake for a vegan coworker's birthday. I had a little trouble following the first part of the recipe and the consistency was a little off at first, but I added a small amount more soy milk and it was slightly better.
BEST FROSTING RECIPE!! I didn't add the shortening, and I added melted chocolate chips, and it turned out amazing. best vegan frosting i've ever had!!
This is amazing!!! Thanks for sharing.
so good i ate it plain after i was done
I needed a frosting and as luck would have it, found one in need of a face. Only 4 stars, I used Real butter! The flavor was YUMMY!! The texture was a bit wonky, so I added a little more milk and that smoothed it right out! I used this to top Pumpkin Ginger cupcakes, but made a sheet cake instead. Thank you LenoreR.
If I could swear on here about how good this was, I would. My partner really assumed it would be no good because it was vegan--then she tried it. Now we're engaged! Actually, it wasn't because of this recipe, but it is really good, and we look forward to serving it to guests.
