Avocados naturally darken in color when exposed to air. This frosting, although already dark in color from the cocoa, will darken as well. Be sure to stir before use to ensure even coloring before “icing” the cakes. View the frosting recipe here: http://beta.primal-palate.com/recipe/avocado-mocha-frosting/
