Chocolate Frosting Recipe

I made this chocolate frosting for Jeff's birthday cake this year and it was amazing. The recipe comes from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's The Joy of Vegan Baking, and says that it will make enough for a 23cm cake or 8 cupcakes. Well, Colleen must absolutely PILE on the frosting because I ended up with a hell of a lot! However, it does say that you can store the frosting in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, just re-whip it before using it. So if you have lots birthdays coming up, that could be very handy.

1/2 cup Nuttelex
3 cups icing sugar, sifted
1/3 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp soy milk, or more as needed

1. With an electric hand mixer (and trust me, you WILL need one!), cream the butter until smooth.

2. With the mixer on low speed, add the icing sugar and cream for about 2 minutes.

3. Add the cocoa, vanilla, and milk. Once the ingredients are all fairly well combined, turn the mixer to high speed. Beat on high speed until the frosting is light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add 1-2 tbsp milk if it's too dry.

Happy eating! :)
