This icing is the perfect finishing touch-- velevty and oh-so-smooth. (This recipe is from the cookbook "How It All Vegan.")

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together the flour and water constantly over medium heat until thick (about the consistency of glue).
  2. Be careful not to burn it!
  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. While it's cooling, in a medium bowl, mix together the sweetener, vanilla, margarine, and cocoa powder until well mixed.
  5. Add the cooled flour mixture to the bowl and stir together until there are no lumps.
  6. Let cool in the fridge for 30-60 minutes-- before using.
