Im looking for a decent vegan cake and frosting recipe. I found one vegan frosting recipe that looks good, but there are a couple of ingredients that Im not familiar with. They are "lecithin" and "fructose" can anyone please tell me what they are and where to find them. Thanks so much!

The regular Wilton bc icing recipe is vegan with the substitution of water or rick/soy milk.

PS Satin Ice is vegan.

Powdered sugar is not always vegan:

If this is for a client who is a TRUE vegan, you'll need to find a brand of powdered sugar that's not processed with bone char.
