This is an icing that is great for Halloween because it looks like slime! It is also a great icing alternative for vegans. Lemon or orange juice can be substituted for the lime juice.

What a tasty and healthy alternative! Piece of advice - if making for a party prepare this at the very last minute...after an hour the green gets darker then after 2 hours very dark green and 3 hours its brown. Doesn't look appetizing but tastes good. Read More

This is a fabulous alternative to frosting. It was tasty. My kids loved it. It has a citrus flavor so I would only use it on lemon orange or other fruity-type cupcakes in the future. Also it was a little runny and refridgeration didn't help it much. The color does change with oxidation but not much until a day or two later. Read More

This icing has a good taste but the texture is more stretchy than traditional buttercream. Read More
