Vegan Buttercream

This recipe makes a lot so you may want to halve it.

• ½ cup nonhydrogenated margarine
• 3 ½ cups icing sugar
• 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla essence
• ¼ cup plain almond/coconut/soy milk (or other suitable alternative)


• Beat the shortening and margarine together until well combined and fluffy.
• Add the sugar and beat for about three more minutes.
