Makes 2.5 Cups

Ingredients

  • 250g (1 block) Copha, at room temperature, sliced
  • 360g (3 cups) icing sugar mixture, sifted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp boiling water

Method

  1. Place Copha in a large bowl of an electric mixer. Using the paddle attachment, beat on a low speed until smooth. Increase speed to medium and beat for a further 3-4 minutes, or until white and creamy. Beat in vanilla.
  2. Gradually add sugar, 1/3 cup at a time, beating until combined. Add boiling water and beat until smooth.

TIPS

  • To soften Copha, leave it out of the fridge for at least 24 hours. Thinly slice or grate.
  • Alternatively, run the outside of the mixing bowl under hot water then add sliced copha and beat. Do not melt Copha.
  • There is enough frosting to ice a 22-23cm cake or 24 cupcakes.
  • Frosting is best used immediately after making. Add a little extra boiling water if frosting starts to firm up.
