    1. 1
      In a small saucepan, whisk together the flour and water constantly over medium heat until thick (about the consistency of glue).
    2. 2
      Be careful not to burn it!
    3. 3
      Once thick, remove from heat and cool off completely by setting the pot in a slightly larger pan of cold water, or a sink with a bit of cold water.
    4. 4
      While it's cooling, in a medium bowl, mix together the sweetener, vanilla, margarine, and cocoa powder until well mixed.
    5. 5
      Add the cooled flour mixture to the bowl and stir together until there are no lumps.
    6. 6
      Let cool in the fridge for 30-60 minutes-- before using.

      I would have never thought to make icing this way! It came out just perfect--and you do need the extra fridge time to thicken it up a bit.

      Kinda like sweetening up the papier mache mix! Fun recipe. I substituted the sweetener with half white sugar/half icing sugar. I added 4 tbsp of cocoa. I also added half of a brick of cream cheese. (I added it after I had already mixed the entire recipe smooth, so my final product ended up kinda lumpy...but that was OK. I was making a "construction" b'day cake.) Good recipe. Will make again.

      Great recipe! Made this for my niece who has several food allergies, she loved it! Substituted 6 tablespoons canola oil for margarine since margarine has soy. Used sugar for dry sweetener. Used with Moist White Cake Moist White Cake (Egg Free).
