  • Makes 1 cup 
  • Ready In:

This frosting has a somewhat maple flavor to it. You can use it right after making it, or if you want to use a cake decorating tip (like in the top photo), put the frosting in the refrigerator for 30 minutes first.



1. Drain the soaked nuts and discard the water.

2. Add all ingredients (the nuts, dates with their soak water, and vanilla) to a blender, and purée until smooth and even in color.

3. Add a little more water as needed, to keep the blender moving if the mixture gets too thick.
