What you will need:
3 Cups Confectioners Sugar
1/2 Cup Softened Butter*
3 TBS Vegan Shortening
1 TSP Vanilla
1-2 TBS Vanilla Almond Milk*
In an electric mixer cream butter and shortening.
Slowly add confectioners sugar one cup at a time, on low speed, mix until crumbled (will look like little white peas). Add Vanilla and mix well. Slowly add 1TBS at a time of vanilla almond milk, until you get a firm consistency that stands firm. You can always add more liquid if needed.
After you’ve mixed the frosting you can add any additional coloring that you want, just be sure that it’s still the consistency of butter cream. Again, you can always add more sugar if needed.
*NOTE: Softened butter and room temperature milk are the fundamental keys to the success of any butter cream frosting. Keeping your dairy at room temperature will help keep the frosting smooth and not lumpy.
