Frosting used on vegan red velvet cupcakes by GourmetmarichefIMG_1168


  • 1 8 ounce tub of Plain Vegan Cream Cheese Alternative (I used Trader Joe’s™)
  • 4 cups more or less of confectioners sugar
  • ½ c. vegan butter substitute
  • 2-4 tbsp. dairy free milk substitute


  1. Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, only adding one cup of confectioners sugar to begin with and 2 tbsp. dairy free milk. You may need more if the frosting is too firm.
  2. With the electric mixer on its lowest setting, blend the ingredients, adding more confectioners sugar slowly. Stop adding the confectioners sugar when you have achieved the thickness you desire.IMG_1182
  3. Use on any cake, cupcake, or muffin recipe you have made. This frosting works great with the vegetable style cakes such as carrot, zucchini or pumpkin.IMG_1211
