Recipe by Nikoma

From Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero's book "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World". This easy "buttercream" frosting is as good (if not better) then any other I've ever had. I was very pleasantly surprised when I first made it! I defy you to tell the difference!

  3. Add vanilla and soy milk.
  4. Beat an additional 5-7 minutes until fluffy!
  5. This is enough to frost your average 13x9 cake, or at least 12 cupcakes.
