    Hi Diana, Interesting recipe, as usually, I just make plain cakes with no icing on, but I will try this icing. By the way, “Happy Easter”. For me, it is my passover.

  2. Well Joy, it is fun to have this addition of icing once in a while; let me know how it works for you.

    Wow.Unusual recipe. This was actually tasty, we only used a little to ice sugar cookies and it was delicious.
    I’m looking for more ways to use Coconut Oil, since its so good for us.
    Lots of people just eat 1-2 tbsp ‘plain’ a day, I can’t do that!
    We’ve tried frying pancakes in it, but not sure that the heat required doesn’t hurt the oil.
    Any suggestions for using coconut and coconut oil?

    Coconut oil works beautifully and tastes great as a substitute for any other fat in baked goods….if the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of butter, then substitute a 1/2 cup of coconut oil. I use it in cookies and banana bread, there is no limit….. tastes great!
