  • 12 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon whiskey (optional, but really great)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (use more or less depending on how thick you want your frosting, and how sweet).
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Cream together the butter and shortening until they are fluffy, about 1 minute.
  • 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.
  • Frost the cupcakes after they've cooled completely.
  • Enjoy!
