This video talks about how to make coconut icing

Hi! My name is Xanthe Milton, I'm also known as cookie girl and today I'm going to show you how to make coconut icing. If you would like to see more of my recipes have a look at y recipe book “Eat me” also, you could have a look at my website cookiegirl.co.

uk to find out more about my cupcake decorating workshops. Ok, so in this bowl I've got 15 ounces of icing sugar or powdered sugar and in this bowl I've got 3 ounces of desiccated coconut and then here I've got 8 ounces of butter. Now the butter has been softened slightly in the microwave.

I'm going to put that in with the icing sugar, I just going to break it up a little, make it a bit easier to blend and then I'm also going to add to that a tablespoon of coconut milk and this is just coconut milk out of a tin. Now, I'm going to start with a tablespoon and see how we get on. So are you ready for me to disappear? Ok so it's going to take a little while to get the butter into the icing sugar.

Now the softer the butter is the quicker the two sill combine. Now I'm going to add some more coconut milk because the mixture is still quite firm. I'm going to add another tablespoon of coconut milk and now I'm going to add the desiccated coconut.

It smells rally good, very tropical. I'm just going to grab some more coconut milk. Now I'm adding a little more liquid and I'm also going to add a couple of tablespoons of the cream from the coconut milk.

Just to give more coconut flavor. And there we have coconut icing.
