The Perfect Vegan Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Updated: Jun 20, 2023

This buttercream holds up like a champ in the Miami weather, which is HOT and humid all year long!

When we first started making cakes at the bakery, we cried a lot over melted buttercream and damaged cakes, but hey! Practice makes perfect, and we are the queens of stubbornness!


Ingredients


2 pounds vegan confectioners’ sugar

1 cup vegan shortening

2 tsp. vanilla extract, use clear if want white frosting

1/4 - 1/2 cup Flora vegan whipping cream

pinch salt


Here’s how to do it:

  1. Cream shortening and vanilla in mixer for 2-4 minutes.

  2. Add in powder sugar, one cup at a time. If you find your mixer struggling, slowing add in the Flora vegan whipped cream.

  3. Use more for a creamy consistency, use less for a stiff consistency.

Tip:

Make sure your vegan butter and/or shortening is at room temperature before beating it. All the lumps should be completely beaten out before adding the sugar a little at a time or it will be impossible to get a smooth consistency.


Alternate method:


Use 1/2 cup vegan butter and 1/2 cup shortening. Place room temp. vegan butter and shortening in mixer. Put entire bag of powder sugar on top, then add vanilla and 1/4 cup Flora whipped cream. Turn mixer on low and mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Turn mixer up to med-high and mix for 2-4 minutes. Can add more vegan whipping cream to reach desired consistency.


How much frosting do I need?

  • 9 x 13 cake needs about four cups frosting

  • 12 x 18 cake needs about six cups frosting

  • 9-inch round layer cake needs five cups frosting

And by all means...Please do NOT use coconut oil, it will melt!
