Instructions
FOR the VEGAN VANILLA FROSTING
  1. To begin, sift 3¾ cups confectioners sugar into a food processor bowl.
  2. Then, add in your choice of plant-based milk, vegan butter, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract into the processor and pulse on low until smooth. Scrape the sides down and repeat.
FOR the VEGAN CHOCOLATE FROSTING
  1. You will have an extra step and an extra ingredient as opposed to the vanilla frosting. To make this version you need too sift the powdered sugar and the ¼ cup of cocoa powder into the food processor.
  2. Next, you add the vegan butter, your choice of plant-based milk and only 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the processor and pulse on low until smooth. Scrape the sides down and repeat.
  3. For both the vanilla and chocolate flavors you can always add more soy milk. I would start with ½ tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency. You want it thick enough to hold onto a cake or cupcake but not stiff. If it’s too thin you just need to add more confectioners sugar until you get the desired consistency.
  4. Next, grab a large cup or mason jar and insert your piping bag. Fold the top of the bag over the rim of your cup or jar.
  5. Using a spatula, transfer the icing into the bag. Continue to do this until all of the Icing is in your bag. Remove the bag from the jar and twist the top and your all set.
  6. You can either pipe your baked goods immediately or you can refrigerate your icing and pipe the cupcakes or cake the next day. It should keep at least 3 days in your refrigerator. Be sure it’s covered well.
