This buttercream frosting is so versatile – you can add it to any birthday or special occasion cake (like my vegan vanilla cake). Spread it on cupcakes or a sheet cake! The possibilities are truly endless with this delicious vegan buttercream frosting.
This frosting won’t take you more than 10 minutes to put together!
Beat the butter and vanilla together for about 2-3 minutes with a handheld or stand mixer, until the mixture is fluffy.
Add in the powdered sugar and vegan milk until it reaches the consistency and thickness you want.
Now all that’s left is to let the frosting set, and then decorate your cake or cupcakes with it! Try not to eat it all from the bowl (I know, it’s hard not to). Enjoy the delicious frosting!
Let Cakes and Cupcakes Cool Before Frosting: Frosting too quickly might make the cake and cupcakes crumble. If you want a pretty cake, wait to frost until it’s cooled.
Sift Your Powdered Sugar: Make sure to sift your powdered sugar before mixing, so that the frosting is the ultimate creamy consistency.
Soften Your Vegan Butter: Be sure that your vegan butter is soft enough to spread before mixing it. You don’t want it runny though!
If Too Thick, Add Milk: The ideal frosting is not runny, but not too thick either. If yours becomes too thick, add a splash of milk until it reaches the desired consistency.
Whip It: For super fluffy frosting, you’ll want to keep whipping it. I prefer using a stand mixer for my frosting so I can whip it for about 5 minutes.
You can store this buttercream frosting at room temperature for up to 3 days. If you want to keep it longer for future baking, keep it in the fridge for a couple weeks, or the freezer for up to 3 months.
You can freeze it! If you do, let it thaw in the fridge overnight beforehand so that it’s back to it’s smooth consistency.
