It worked well and tasted amazing without changing anything!I recommend this a lot

I used coconut based butter. It was a little runny with no water used, had to add 1/2 more sugar... but it was great then. Better than my old actual butter cream.

I made mine with a virgin coconut oil spread. To make it again, I would skip the water because it was a tiny bit too soft for piping well. It was easy though, and tastes quite good!

This recipe came out really nicely. I used Earth Balance Original margarine and found that there was an aftertaste to the frosting, even after I’d added the banana extract, which was pretty powe...
