    I just made your cake. I was making the frosting but it is way too runny. I even put in more avocado and it is still runny. Any suggestions?

    1. You may just need to chill the ingredients for a few minutes so that they can congial together. If that doesn’t work you can add a little bit of any type of whole grain flour, whole wheat flour, oat flour, barley flour, or even a tiny bit of cornstarch. Hope this helps.
