Making vegan dessert recipes has been so much fun. My first ever buttercream frosting recipe (marshmallow buttercream) was so popular I started making them every weekend. The versatility of frosting is infinite. Like this coconut frosting for cake.

When I was newly sober I literally didn’t have money for food. Someone fed me then, so I can feed others now. Every Sunday my husband (who has 13 years of sobriety) runs a meeting for newly sober guys. So I bake something for them.

I know cakes and treats can’t keep them sober but maybe it will make them happy for a day. They like coconut frosting for cake. I recently realized how much I love this Coconut whipped cream recipe in my coffee and tea!
