Vegan Cupcakes And Non Buttercream Frosting Recipes

Vegan Raspberry Lemon by Angel Cakes in San

We got a comment that brings up a good question-- What is vegan buttercream frosting? Buttercream frosting is typically made with butter, so what should we call it vegan (non)buttercream?

Here's three vegan (non)buttercream frosting recipes:

If you have any tips or recipes for vegan (non)buttercream frosting, please share with us in the comments.

I just use non-dairy shortening and powdered sugar:

1 cup non-dairy shortening
1 lb powdered icing sugar
1 tsp flavoring
7-8 Tbs non-dairy milk or water

1. cream all liquid ingredients
2. add sugar and whip until light and fluffy.

Also the recipe book "Vegan Cupcakes take over the world" from Isa Chandra Moskowitz has some fantastic vegan recipes for baking and frosting.
