"My daughter is sensitive to dairy and soy products, so I've been searching in vain for a frosting to go with her dairy and soy free birthday cake for her first birthday this week... had to improvise a bit, and this is the result."
Add oil and vanilla to mixing bowl. Gradually beat in confectioner's sugar, alternating with water until desired thickness is achieved. If a thinner frosting is desired, increase water. If a thicker one is desired, decrease water. Color to preference! :)
