  • This comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's "Vegan With a Vengeance", p. 228. I couldn't get the frosting to work, even adding more powdered sugar. It just dripped over the sides. I substituted whole wheat pastry flour. - 8/23/09

    Thank you for citing the source on this. Her cookbook is a really great one for kids with dairy allergies like mine. The desserts are very flavorful.
