About the bake

Just because you are avoiding dairy doesn't mean you have to miss out on delicious chocolate buttercream. A perfect topping for dairy free chocolate cupcakes. 

10Prep Time


  1. Step 1:

    In a bowl beat together the Icing Sugar, Butter and Cacao Powder.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the Vanilla Extract and mix until blended. 

  3. Step 3:

    This buttercream should make enough to ice 12 or more cupcakes or a large sponge cake.

    Would be the ideal topping for vegan chocolate cupcakes.
