This nice icing keeps its shape. It's great for piping on cut-out cookies, yet stiff enough for making flowers. It may be too sugary to mound up on cupcakes, unless of course you have a strong sweet tooth! I like using pure bourbon vanilla extract in this.

It was too thick,too sugary,and wasn't very creamy. I choose this recipe because I am lactose intolerant,but after tasting this,I think I'll take the chance with regular icing.

I doubled this recipe, used 6.5 cups of powdered sugar, subbed almond milk for the soy & added 1/2 tsp imitation butter flavoring- REALLY GOOD! Used it on cupcakes for my kids birthday & no one knew it was vegan. I'll definitely use it again!

Just bad. I ended up throwing a majority of it away then adding flour and soy milk to it. Really the confectioners sugar is too too much, it only needs about 1/4 of what the recipe calls for.
