  1. Place the vegan buttery spread in a mixing bowl and mix on medium speed until fluffy. Add the vanilla extract.

  2. Sift the powdered sugar in a little at a time, alternating with drizzling in a little bit of the non-dairy milk. Continue to do this until all the sugar is incorporated and the frosting is a smooth, creamy, consistency.

  3. If the frosting gets too thick, add a little more non-dairy milk. If it gets too runny, add more powdered sugar. 

  4. Spread the frosting on your cake or cupcakes with an offset spatula, or pipe it on using a decorating bag and an icing tip.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes enough frosting to frost an 8-inch single layer cake or about 14 cupcakes.
