Dairy-Free Chocolate Butter Cream Icing Recipe (LF) (GF)

This Dairy-free Chocolate Butter Cream Icing Recipe is a variation of that posted by The Dairy-Free Diva which can be found here. Finally, I can now make pretty cupcakes for my partner who is lactose intolerant :). Can't wait. Very excited! Lots of thanks goes out to Stephanie Colman: The Dairy-Free Diva for the recipe. I tried out my first batch on top of my feijoa cake; it was delicious and very easy to make.

INGREDIENTS:
3/4 cup cold margarine
2 2/3 cup icing sugar
6 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla essence

METHOD:
Put margarine into a bowl.
Sift in icing sugar and cocoa powder.
Mix well.
Mix in vanilla essence with a wooden spoon.
Over a shallow sink of warm water, beat the mixture until it forms into a spreadable consistency.
Remove bowl from sink and your dairy-free butter cream icing is ready to use.

TIPS:
  • After you add the vanilla essence, the mixture will still seem quite dry
  • Make sure the water in the sink is not hot as the mixture will split if heated too far
  • After you start forming a thick icing consistency, electric beaters can be used to get a smooth consistency. 
Enjoy!
