VANILLA FROSTING

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup dairy-free butter
1/4 cup solid coconut oil or shortening
1-3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla (affiliate)

HOW TO MAKE VANILLA FROSTING

This can be made with soy-free margarine.

Mix butter and coconut oil or shortening with a mixer.

Add vanilla.

Slowly add powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time.

Beat on high speed until icing consistency is reached. If it’s too thick, add dairy-free milk 1/4 tsp. at a time.

This can be a little temperamental depending on the season and room temperatures.

If it’s summer, you will do best to use chilled butter and coconut oil.

If it’s winter, room temp works and the milk may need added.

Store cupcakes with this homemade frosting in the refrigerator. Coconut oil melts.
