This orange vegan frosting is really easy to make and great a-top vanilla cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes. The citrus flavour is refreshing and light. Let us know what your fave flavour combination is with this vegan orange frosting. When I ice cupcakes for an event, I tend to do tiny little dots of icing on half the cakes and then full-on smothering (as pictured here) for the other half. It gives people the option of how much sugar they want to eat with their cupcake!
- ¼ C vegan cream cheese (we use violife as it's dairy-free & soya-free)
- ¼ C sunflower spread
- 2 C icing sugar
- 1 tsp orange extract
Cream the fats together until they are throughly combined and smooth.
Then add the icing sugar, I do this in half cup measures with a lid on the mixer to avoid a sugar storm!
Once the icing sugar is beaten in add the orange extract and beat for a couple of minutes and get ready to pipe.
Always make sure that your cakes are 100% cold - with no residual heat in their centres before you start decorating them with this fresh and fruity icing!
