“This is a rich, caramely buttercream frosting, which pairs perfectly with a simple chocolate cake, or frost an apple cake for a sweet Autumn treat. This icing can also be made with standard ingredients such as milk and butter. It makes enough to frost one two-inch layer cake, or 24 cupcakes.”

Quite unexpectedly good for a vegan recipe. I made this to top some vegan chocolate cupcakes for some friends of mine that don't consume animal products. My only critique would be that it seemed a little oily/greasy, so perhaps cutting the margarine content to less than 1/2 cup would yield a better consistency. Taste is excellent, however, the texture is the only problem I am having. Also, I am refrigerating the frosting to see if it yields a less greasy result after cooling completely.

I made this to go along with a vegan chocolate cake for a vegan coworker's birthday. I had a little trouble following the first part of the recipe and the consistency was a little off at first, but I added a small amount more soy milk and it was slightly better.
