25g (1 oz) cocoa
25g (1 oz) vegetable margarine
250g (10 oz) icing sugar
6 tablespoons or more of soya milk
1tsp vanilla essence
1. Melt margarine and add cocoa. Simmer for a couple of minutes over very low heat.
2. Take off the heat. Add a couple of tablespoons of soya milk, and begin to add icing sugar through a sieve (or it gets pretty lumpy).
3. Continue to add icing sugar and stir, adding more soya milk as necessary.
4. Stir in vanilla and spread onto cake.
