  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of milk

  • Scrape down the sides of your Thermomix bowl and add the vanilla extract, cocoa and milk before mixing for 1 minute on speed 3.


This icing is best made just before it's needed.
If you are making this icing in warm conditions, you may like to pop it into the fridge for 10 minutes to chill before using it - especially if you are going to pipe it.
Once you have iced your cakes/cupcakes, place them either in an airtight container or wrap with cling wrap.
You can use icing sugar mixture for this recipe, however you may need to add an extra 1/2 tablespoon of milk.
