Many people will argue me on this, but I believe the best part about cake is the frosting. These vegan frosting recipes are no exception.
Whether you’re looking for classic vanilla or maraschino cherry, I have so many amazing flavors on this list. The process of making vegan frosting does not differ much from regular frosting. But, the ingredients are what set them apart.
Many of these recipes are also gluten-free, so they’re perfect if you’re baking for someone with food sensitivities. Enjoy these vegan frosting recipes on cupcakes, oat flour cake, or any sweet treat you desire!
