Definitely oily. I started with powdered sugar and vanilla and gradually added the coconut oil. The oil soaked into the powdered sugar very quickly and I only added a couple of tablespoons before I switched tactics and started adding coffee creamer (also lactose free for my mother-in-law) until the consistency was to my liking.

I made this recipe as written. It turned out so good! Didn’t use liquid coconut oil, used the solidified oil and it didn’t turn out oily at all. Didn’t add any other ingredients. Read More

Great little recipe - took awhile to get the consistency I liked.... so I let adding the powdered the sugar until it sufficed. It isn’t a creamy kind of frosting, there are lumps but if you whisk it enough, the lumps gets smaller and looks nice. Read More

I didn't try melting the coconut oil... mistake.. need to do that. to fix the really dry crumbly start I added equal part of veg. shortening and a few teaspoons of almond milk. I also added artificial strawberry flavoring to match my strawberry cupcakes. I probably added powedered sugar in the ratio suggested here but I have made the wilton's icing so many times I kind of know how to judge sugar to fat to liquid ratios to get a good product. This tasted better than wiltons due to the coconut flavor. Read More

Turned out as expected go my gluten free cake. I just added 2/3 c powdered cocoa for chocolate frosting. The whole point for me is the better fat content. I don t do any sugar so this tasted excellent. Read More
