This post gives a recipe for a delicious, easy, dairy-free cake icing that tastes just like buttercream. It’s great for anyone avoiding dairy!
If you’re dairy-free, you don’t have to miss out on a buttercream cake icing that tastes just like the real thing.
The following recipe is easy, delicious and will have even your dairy-eating counterparts begging for more.
Dairy-Free Cake Icing
- Cream the shortening and sugar.
- Add 4 Tbsp. milk of choice and vanilla.
This will yield a nice, thick frosting. If you would like a thinner version, add more milk--a little at a time.
You can make your own powdered sucanat by pulsing it in a blender. Note that it does have a stronger, molassesy taste.
I used this dairy-free cake icing on Little Girl’s birthday cake last week. I used Indian Tree food coloring (which are natural food dyes) to tint the icing. It turned out great and was a hit with the kids!
Have you ever made dairy-free cake icing?
