I used this to decorate my vegan lemon cupcakes. I got this recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, a very good lil cake book. I decorated my cakes with edible green glitter.

  1. In a small bowl cream shortening and margarine together until well mixed.
  2. Add the icing sugar in 1/2 cup additions. After each addition add a splash of lemon juice and beat well (this is easiest with hand held mixer). Add vanilla and beat for another 3-5 minutes until you have a smooth creamy and fluffy frosting.
  3. Wrap tightly in plastic and refrigerate until needed. Pipe or spread over cakes and refrigerate to set.
