"This frosting is GREAT. It has far less sugar than traditional buttercream frostings and has a better texture as well.Tint it any color you wish, decorate with sprinkles or just devour it straight from the bowl! The recipe came from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. It is perfect for topping my vegan chocolate cupcakes!"

"This is an easy frosting recipe and it tastes good too! Mine did get a little "melty" after being left out for a while so I do recommend refrigerating your cupcakes after a few hours. Another reviewer said she used these on pumpkin muffins and I think that's an awesome idea! That will be my next use for this wonderful recipe!"
"Fantastic frosting! I think this will be my go-to recipe from now on, it's so smooth and creamy - very delicous and holds up well. It was pretty hot out yesterday and the frosting didn't ooze or even shift for that matter. Used this over some vanilla vegan cupcakes with strawberry sauce. I used tofutti plain "cream" cheez and the flavour of that is very mild, no one would have known that was in it, but it made it very creamy so I would never leave it out now. The "cheez" flavour is not as strong as the cream cheese is in the typical dairy version, which I was happy about. Thx!"
"I don't know what "real cream cheese frosting" should taste like... but this vegan frosting is amazing!!! don't let the vegan name fool you this is full taste. Thank you."
"Delicious! I used it for pumpkin muffins."
"Delicious!! You wouldn't know it was vegan. I used lemon juice instead of the vanilla extract for a zingy version and it worked perfectly on my vegan carrot cupcakes."
"This frosting is delicious! I used it as a topping for chai cupcakes, and it worked perfectly with all the spices. This frosting would also be great for carrot cake, and I'm sure I'll be using it again. Thanks!"
"best vegan cream cheese icing I have found yet!"
"Yum! Tastes decadent, but much healthier than regular cream cheese frosting. I made this with 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes (Recipe #258970), and people could not believe it was vegan! Also, it's easy to make. This will definitely be a new staple for me."
"It is simply amazing! I made this along to go with the Basic Vegan Chocolate Cupcake and WOW. I am not a vegan myself, but I am a vegetarian with dairy allergies, but you do not have to be either to enjoy this recipe. I made these for my husband and his co-workers and they were absolutly amazed! It is not as stiff as traditional, but looks and tastes just as good, if not better!"
"This frosting was so yummy! Easy to make! This is going to be my new go to frosting."
"This frosting tastes like a creamy buttercream frosting. I agree with all the reviews that this frosting was tasty, and the vegan cream cheese made it creamier than a traditional buttercream (vegan or not). I was, however, surprised at how sweet this frosting was. I guess I expected it to taste more like a dairy cream cheese frosting which I prefer over the super-sweet american buttercream. This frosting did seem to hold up better than any cream cheese frosting I have used before."
"fantastic frosting. great on a vegan carrot cake.
thanks for posting this!"
"Love this and it went perfectly with my vegan red velvet whoopie pies:) It wasn't too rich or too runny like so many vegan frosting recipes can be."
"BEST Vegan Cream Cheeze frosting yet!!
I love this recipe. It is so simple, and taste delicious. :) Finally I found a GOOD vegan cream cheeze recipe! Thanks! Loves it!"
