Vegan Toasted Coconut Frosting

I made this recipe for frosting my Pina Colada Cupcakes.

It would be good on chocolate cupcakes too.

Vegan Toasted Coconut Frosting
  • ½ cup butter-flavored vegan margarine
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons coconut milk
  • ¼ teaspoon coconut extract
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sweetened shredded coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 300F.
  2. On a baking sheet spread out shredded coconut. Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes until lightly browned. Remove and set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium bowl whip margarine and icing sugar together.
  4. Add coconut milk a teaspoon at a time until the correct consistency is reached.
  5. Add flavor extracts and stir.
  6. Pipe frosting on cooled cupcakes.
  7. Sprinkle with cooled toasted coconut.
I couldn’t score a decent picture of the frosted cupcake. Just trust me that it was good. One of the dinner guests licked off the serving platter.

    I’m a sucker for coconut too! It’s amazing how much sweeter coconut tastes when it’s toasted too. You should really give the pineapple cupcakes a whirl too … if you’re a fan of pineapple that is. :)
