- 250 g Copha, If you can get hold of Crisco, this can be used
- 250 g unsalted butter, vegan margarine can be used instead
- 1 tsp clear vanilla extract, If not after a pure white icing, use a vanilla bean
- 1000 g icing sugar, No need to sift for use in TMX :)
- 2 tbsp Milk, vegan milk can be used instead

I thought I'd include this recipe as it's an amazing icing recipe and perfect for the Thermomix as it makes light work of Copha! I do recommend having the Copha at room temperature however, and to initially cut the block up into small pieces.
Places pieces of Copha into TMX bowl and chop on Speed 5/6 for 10 seconds or so. Add butter (also cut up into cubes) and combine together with Copha on Speed 5/6 for a few seconds until smooth. Add vanilla and the sugar a cup at a time, and use Speed 3/4 depending on how well the sugar gets integrated. The Thermomix works best when there is some liquid to assist with the movement of the ingredients so add a tablespoon of milk now. Keep combining remaining cups of sugar at various speeds until fully combined and smooth. Add remaining milk and colouring if using. For anyone wondering, even Wilton's strongest colours won't stain the TMX bowl
For best results, keep icing in the TMX bowl in refrigerator until ready to use. You can whip it up on Speed 4 for a few seconds to make it spreadable/pipable. Remaining icing can be refrigerated in an airtight container, and stored for 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.
