Orange Coconut Oil Frosting
Recipe notes: Be sure to melt your coconut oil in a glass bowl. I do this
by putting the bowl over a small pan of simmering water.

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted in a glass bowl
couple of teaspoons of raw honey
1 packed teaspoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients into warm coconut oil. You are now going to place the
bowl into the freezer in order to cool it down. It is very important to
check on it every couple of minutes to catch it before it gets too cold.
You want to take it out of the freezer right when it starts to get cloudy.

At this point the cold bowl (and your cool kitchen) will continue to turn
the liquid oil into a solid. Continue to whisk the frosting as it gets
cloudier and cloudier and eventually turns into a whipped butter
consistency. The idea is to get a bit of air into it. Once it is to a
whipped (very soft) butter consistency plop it onto your cooled cake. Frost
it very quickly before the coconut oil hardens. It will seem like a pretty
thin layer of frosting, but it is just enough.
