    I need a frosting recipe that has no dairy or soy, and can be used to decorate a cake. Also tastes good. Can anyone help?

    Any basic vegetable shortening/Crisco based buttercream frosting will work

    Crisco contains soy!

    However, there are other brands of shortening that are soy- and dairy-free.

    Could Spectrum Organic Shortening be used in place of Crisco?

    This chocolate hummus recipe is my own creation. However, I used the Snickerdoodle Dessert Hummus by Blissful Baking as a starting point. That hummus recipe should also be added to your short list of party spreads to try.

    •1 can (14 oz) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
    •1/2 cup chocolate nut butter (I used Justin's Chocolate Almond Butter. You could also use chocolate hazelnut spread like Nutella or a chocolate peanut butter. The higher quality your chocolate nut butter, the better the end result will be. If you use Nutella or another product with lots of added sugar, your end result will be sweeter than mine and, depending on your personal taste preferences, you may need to cut back on the honey.)

    •1/4 cup honey
    •2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1.Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it's as smooth as you can get it.
    2.Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat

    I always use this -> Spectrum Organic Shortening -- 24 oz, since I thought it would be a little healthier than Crisco. Worked just as good, the only thing is the frosting's color is not going to be "snow white" if that the color you looking for.
    It is 100% Palm oil.
    I hope this helps!

    I can speak for Spectrum's general flexibility, in all their products. I am not sure, but if your frosting recipe calls for any lemon juice or extract, you might get the frosting to brighten a bit. Even a tiny amount might do it.
    This is an educated guess, btw.

    I no longer buy a lot of pre made stuff.

    This is my frosting.. if you want choc, add cocoa powder:

    powdered sugar
    softened BUTTER
    vanilla extract

    milk or cream to thin if necessary.

    I just whip it all up together and judge the spreadability by trying it and, of course, tasting it.

    Butter, milk and cream?

    This recipe was in the paper today

    1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened (you'd use dairyfree margarine)
    2 cups powdered sugar
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    4-5 tbl soymilk, almond milk or coconut milk (this is the coconut milk that is in the refrigerated case or shelf stable containers, not the canned)

    Using an electric mixer, beat margarine until fluffy. Slowly add powdered sugar. Add vanilla. Add nondairy milk, 1 tbl at a time, until the frosting is spreadable. If a thinner icing is desired, add a little more nondairy milk.
