I would like to make carrot cake and top it somehow *like* cream-cheese icing…

Cheers,

Definitely possible. Here is one recipe:

Not sure where you get the shortening or the sat fat content. I am sure you google and find one with silken tofu.

Anything is possible!

This one looks more OMS friendly:

Can you let me know how it turns out? Sounds delicious!

Excellent i had the idea for this minus the tofu. I was using icing sugar to thicken but it wasn't thick enough, tofu is the answer thanks!

Cheers — so just more tofu to thicken, rather than sugar.
I thought of agar agar to thicken, but that mightn't be enough.
My icing's flavour was good, but it soaked into the cake after a while…
I made an anti-OMS cream-cheese icing for others (sigh).

Thanks!
