I had my first vegan request, tried one recipe, which failed miserably. I came across this one, and it was FANTASTIC. Even my BF, who’s a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, tried the vegan cupcake with vegan vanilla frosting and loved it!
|1/2 C||soy butter (Earth Balance is good)|
|3 1/2 C||confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar)|
|1 1/2 tsp||vanilla|
|1/4 C||soy milk (or rice milk. I used vanilla flavoured soy milk)|
Cream together shortening and soy butter, then add confectioner’s sugar and beat for a couple of minutes. Add soy milk and vanilla, and beat for 7-8 minutes, until fluffy.
You can adjust the consistency of the frosting by adding more soy milk or sugar.
