Vegan buttercream marshmallow fluff frosting recipe uses vegetable shortening as a base ingredient. It is solid at room temperature. Therefore it does not need refrigeration.

Furthermore you can Store it for one year. The sweetness in this frosting comes from powdered sugar and Smuckers marshmallow topping.

Powdered sugar is also called confectioners sugar. It is sometimes called icing sugar. Sometimes Powdered sugar is also called icing sugar. It’s made by grinding sugar into powder. You can make it at home. Just put granulated sugar in a coffee grinder! It helps creates that thick buttercream frosting.

Unfortunately Marshmallows are not vegan. Due to the fact that they contain gelatin. The gelatin creates shape. However marshmallow cream does not need gelatin.

Smuckers Marshmallow Topping IS vegan.
Marshmallow Topping is a creamy ingredient in vegan buttercream. It fluffs up with the shortening and sugar. I found it near the chocolate syrup at my local grocery store. It adds the yummiest flavor to vegan frostings.

It is important to use an electric mixer for extra whipped dairy free marshmallow fluff frosting. Start with the vegetable shortening ingredient. Blend it alone first to break it up. Then Add the marshmallow fluff topping and blend with the mixer.

Blend Vegan smuckers marshmallow shortening mixture into a thick paste. Then Add powdered sugar last. Add the sugar one cup at a time and blend in between. Otherwise you will cause a powder sugar explosion!

Blend the dairy free marshmallow fluff buttercream frosting thoroughly. Vegan marshmallow buttercream frosting should be thick and fluffy.

This frosting tastes delicious on cakes and bakes!
