  • Red Bean Icing:
    Boil red beans with enough water to cover all beans. Stop cooking when beans are soft. Set aside to cool. Then mash beans up with a blender till you get a fine paste. Add water by teaspoonfuls if required to get a smooth but thick consistency. When cooled completely, transfer to mixer and beat together with icing sugar. Adjust amount according to desired sweetness and texture. Chill for about half hour before spreading on cake.
