This frosting is perfect for a variety of dairy-free cakes and cupcakes, and it is so creamy and delicious, you won't know that it's vegan!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: About 3 cups


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) dairy-free soy margarine, softened
  • 1 lb. confectioners' sugar
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 2 T. cold soy milk


1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the dairy-free soy margarine with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients, beating for about 2 minutes on a medium speed setting until the mixture resembles a thick frosting.

Not good, Member cdrista215

No matter what I did, I couldn't make this taste good and couldn't get the right consistency of actual frosting. I will look for another recipe and not make this again.
