orange vegan frosting

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


  1. Cream the fats together until they are throughly combined and smooth.

  2. Then add the icing sugar, I do this in half cup measures with a lid on the mixer to avoid a sugar storm!

  3. 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!
