Hey lissa…do you have a recommendation for a vegan icing recipe with these cupcakes/muffins?
I am so excited for your new baking adventures – Vegan cupcakes are the best!
There are a bunch of fancy ways of making amazing vegan icing, but I err on the side of simplicity and make icing the way my mama taught me: 1 tbsp or so of butter, a lil boiled water, 1 cup of icing sugar and 1 tbsp of cocoa powder. I substitute butter for good quality nondairy butter, of course! Put all of those ingredients in a small bowl and mix like a madwoman with a fork until it’s blended – add more icing sugar until it’s the consistency you want 🙂 For a lemony icing, substitute the cocoa powder for 2 tsp lemon rind and 2 tsp lemon juice. Mmmm yum.
yewww, thank you, i will give coconut butter/oil a go and see if that works.
