Coconut Pecan Frosting

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup pecans
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1/2 cup nondairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

What you do: 

1. Boil together all ingredients in a medium to large saucepan over medium-high heat for 12 minutes, stirring constantly.
2. Pour, then spread on cake while frosting is still warm.
3. Let set up for a few minutes before serving (sets up faster if you cover it and place it in the fridge).
I used this for my German Chocolate wedding cake and it was a big hit! No one believed it was vegan.

AMAZING!  Followed the recipe to a T, put it on while my chocolate cake was still hot, then put whole thing into fridge to set.  Worked out really well, stuck well, looked pretty and tasted amazing.

Koken:

I use regular 'ol non-sweetened coconut, or I use sweetened coconut (but I cut down the sugar to 1/2 a cup then).

I also use a 1/4 cup of vegan margarine spread and a 1/4 cup of applesauce when I am in diet mode.

Substituting applesauce for all of the margarine isn't bad either, but don'e expect it to be so rich then.

Good luck! ;D

I hope my info was helpful.

I like putting this on my chocolate cake. It's really good. I use walnuts instead of pecans, and it tastes just fine.

I especially like the coconut, as it is sweet, but not overly sweet.

Great job! :D

I just want to ask about the coconut, is it hard meat of coconut or soft and is it in can or fresh?

This frosting was amazing! I thought for sure my days of enjoying german chocolate cake were gone when I turned vegan. Me and this cake had spent 3 years apart, and the reunion was spectacular!
The only thing is, I found that this definitely wasnt a sufficient amount to cover a 2 layer cake! ??? I'll have to double the recipe next time!

This is superb.  I used this as the topping for my chocolate cake(from this site), and my boyfriend's mom and sister fought over the crumbs.
