Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick) vegan butter like Earth Balance at room temperature
  • 4 tbsp vegetable shortening
  • 1 tsp whiskey (optional, but really great)
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar (use more or less depending on how thick you want your frosting, and how sweet).
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Cream together the butter and shortening until they are fluffy, about 1 minute.
  2. Now add the remaining ingredients and half the sugar. Beat until mixed, then add the remaining sugar and beat until mixed. This should take no more than 2 minutes altogether.
  3. Frost the cupcakes after they've cooled completely.
  4. Enjoy!
