Hi there,

I have an order for a vegan cake, which is easy to substitute for, but I don't have a buttercream recipe that is vegan. Can someone help?

Thanx!

The good old Wilton class butter cream is made with only crisco, a vegatable shortening. That should work.

You can even use Sugar Shack's recipe, it is also non-dairy, all shortening. Yummy too.

Sugar Shack's recipe contains powdered creamer and I am pretty sure it has dairy derivatives in it...

Coffee Mate products are non dairy and lactose free. I am HIGHLY lactose/dairy intolerant, so I do check!

You can buy dairy free butter, the best brand is earth balance if you happen to have a recipe that includes butter.

Coffee Mate has sodium casienate, which is a milk derivative but is not a source of lactose. My son has milk allergies.

pm jasonkraft. He specializes in vegan, allergen-free products and will be able to give you some guidelines and opinions.

Thankyou SO much..I was able to find one:

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup nonhydrogenated shortening
1/2 cup nonhydrogenated margarine, we use Earth Balance
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted if clumpy
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup plain soy milk or soy creamer

INSTRUCTIONS
Beat the shortening and margarine together until well combined and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat for about 3 more minutes. Add the vanilla and soy milk, and beat for another 5 to 7 minutes until fluffy.
