    Sounds good, though not exactly “whole foods heavy”… I’m still looking for not-so-terrible-for-you frostings (aside from chocolate ganache). I guess I’ll have to figure it out myself!

    Maija, I’m not even sure it’s possible to make a frosting that doesn’t use confectioners sugar. If you find one post it here.

    Isn’t regular sugar and by extension, confectioners sugar processed with bone char?

    Iorrwill, Read this page for more info about sugar, http://www.vegsource.com/jo/qa/qasugar.htm

    If your only concern is eating a plant based diet, than the fact that you might by chance have eaten sugar that is filtered using bone char isn’t a concern.

    If you are concerned about the sugar, why stop there? Did you also know that organic vegetables are grown using animal byproducts? Poop for fertilizer. … Is there anything that’s really 100 percent vegan? Best to strive for 99 percent tehe

    While we are not vegan, I try to make as many things as I can with vegan recipes. They just taste so great!!! This frosting and the white cake are by far the best vegan desserts I have ever tried. An added bonus to making vegan cakes is my young daughters can lick the beaters/spoons with no worries of raw eggs. Love this site. Keep up the awesome work! Thank you!

    I made this and used it to frost a homemade vegan spice cake and it was delicious! This will be my go to frosting from now on!

    Thanks for the comment! So glad you like the icing.

    Should I replace the almond extract with vanilla? I know that it will probably change the flavor a bit, but my daughter is allergic to nuts, don’t want to take any risks. Any other suggestions? Thanks for the great recipe.

    Liv, that should work fine.
