Real Raspberry Frosting

Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting
This Frosting is so easy to make, and so vividly colored, and delicious. It can be made thick enough to pipe through a pastry tube, if you want a nice swirl - or you can spread it with a knife.

Whether you want to use it for a Valentine's Day treat, or for a Birthday - it's delightful!

Vegan Raspberry Frosting
Mix with Electric mixer, adding Powdered Sugar Gradually until desired thickness is reached
1/4 Cup Frozen Red Raspberries, thawed and mashed with a fork
1/4 Cup Earth Balance or other Vegan Buttery Spread
About 3 Cups Powdered Sugar (Also known as Confectioner's Sugar or XXXX Sugar)

My experience is that when I think it is thick enough, I should continue adding sugar for a bit longer to really get a piping consistency.

Decorate Cupcakes (or cake). If you want sprinkles or other decorations, add them while Frosting is wet. Allow to set/dry.

This Frosting Freezes well - you can decorate Cupcakes and wrap them airtight to freeze (in such a way that the frosting isn't damaged)  Thaw at room temperature, without unwrapping.

A Note about Confectioner's Sugar Frostings - often the Frosting might seem to have a gritty texture when freshly made, before the Frosting sets. It is my experience that this is fine, and the texture turns out perfect when the Frosting has set.

Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
