The Icing:
  1. Place nearly all the coconut milk in a saucepan and whisk in the agar powder. Bring to the boil, stirring frequently to prevent the agar sticking to the bottom of the pan. When the mixture comes to a rolling boil, reduce the heat to low and allow simmer for 6 minutes, all the while gently whisking
  1. Meanwhile, place the cornflour and remaining coconut milk in a cup, and mix into a smooth paste
  1. Remove the agar mixture from the heat, whisk in cacao and maple syrup, then add cornflour mixture and whisk to combine well
  1. Return the pan to the heat and boil, stirring constantly. The mixture will thicken and lose its cloudy look as soon as it starts to boil
  1. Remove from heat. Add in the vanilla and broken chocolate, stirring until smooth and silky. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until set (1-2 hours)
  1. Final step – process the mixture in a blender until luscious and glossy. Transfer to a bowl and store in fridge until required Logo
