I made this frosting last night and it was excellent! Next time I will use brown sugar instead of white to get the rich carmel color of the non-vegan version. Instead of her recipe, I did the 7-up Duncan Heinz German Choc Cake mix. DELISH!

I doubled the recipe and made a beautiful and delicious two-layer cake! Such an easy recipe, too! No need to double the frosting, btw - I had a ton left over. Luckily, it was good enough to eat with a spoon like pudding
