A few recipe notes
This frosting perform best when you whip it up and immediately frost your dessert. Do not put the frosting in the fridge for later – re-whipping it or even just disturbing it after it is “set” can result in separation which is unsightly. Make it, frost it, don’t mess with it until you’re gonna devour it!
VERY IMPORTANT: When sifting carob powder and adding to oil and shortening, add a little carob at a time to avoid the airy powder drifting all over your kitchen! You may want to place your hand or a kitchen cloth over the sifter to hold it in.
