A smooth and creamy mango buttercream frosting

Recipe type: Cake frosting
Serves: Frosting for 12 cupcakes
Ingredients
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick) Vegan Butter like Earth Balance
  • 8 tbsp Vegetable Shortening
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar (I’ve seen recipes that use more than 3 cups of confectioners’ sugar for the same amount of butter and shortening and if you like a really sweet frosting, you might try adding more. But 2 cups, I found, was just perfect).
  • ¼ cup Mango Pulp or Puree
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
Instructions
  1. Cream together the butter and shortening until they are fluffy, about 1 minute.
  2. Now add the mango puree and vanilla 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.
