As visions of chocolate bunnies danced in her head…

Fondant did indeed make an appearance at my Easter. Saturday night, we went to a neighbor’s house for a pre-Easter gathering, and Blushing Bunny Cake tagged along.

My mom and I worked together to make the Bugs Bunny Carrot Cake.

She cooked it, and I decorated. Without a good vegan vanilla icing recipe, we came up with our own. It’s ridiculously-simple!

Fat-Free Vanilla Icing

Whip it all up until it’s thick. Then you can use it as-is or even color it .

    You look so pretty with the cake! I love your shirt too!

    I’m so glad you had a fun Easter…and I know all the partiers were missing out by not having a cake made especially by you!

    You are such a baking superstar! I was stuck at school for Easter and didn’t even get to enjoy a mediocre Easter dessert, let alone THOSE fantastic masterpieces!

    Aww, what a cute cake, Katie! You are seriously gifted.
    Do you have any recommendations for buying frosting tips? I’d like to try my hand at making cupcakes and want something not too complicated.

    I saw Shelby’s 24-carrot cupcakes earlier and started drooling! I’ll have to check out your egg-cellent recipe!

    You are a very talented cake decorator. I’m always so impressed with your pictures. Looks like you had a happy easter!

    Hey girlie!

    I feel like I should bake something. I get so caught up in cooking all the time that I never leave time to bake. Not to mention the prep space at my place is TINY! Man, I miss my parent’s kitchen.

    Happy (belated) Easter to you too 🙂

    PLEASE, never stop with your witty titles! They are so darling and creative. And hey, who doesn’t love a little corny here and there?

    i realize your a sugar free blog so i was wondering have you ever found a sugar free powdered sugar or know of a recipe for a sugar free powdered sugar?

    Stumbled on your blog googling fat-free vanilla icing. I am making cupcakes for my Sunday school class for Easter. There is a sweet 8 year old in my class battling pancratitis and can only eat fat free foods. I knew angel food cake was fat free. With your recipe for fat-free vanilla icing, she gets to have a cute cupcake with a Peep on top like the rest of the class. Thanks a bunch.

    I made the frosting today but it was runny and would not stay on the cupcakes. Did I add too much milk? How did you get yours to firm up and make the green edges? Thanks

    this turned out to be more of a glaze; though i added more sugar and vanilla (still pretty thin).
    also very sweet for my taste; added fresh lemon juice to subside the strength.
    great base recipe!

    hey, I am making a cake for a little girl with a disease where she cannot have fat. She has never had a decorated cake before, complete with fondant and I just wanted to check if you thought this frosting could be piped and would be able to have fondant adhere to it. From looking at the picture it looks like yes to all my questions but I I just wanted to confirm with your opinion. Thanks!

  15. Sandra says

    Does this recipe make an frosting, or more of a glaze? Any time I’ve tried making a frosting with just powdered sugar and milk, I get a thin glaze that works great on sugar cookies, but not as a cake frosting. Maybe I’m not whipping the mixture long enough? All I have is a hand mixer with regular beaters attached. I would appreciate any thoughts you may have!
