postheadericon Faux Cream Cheese Frosting

When I make Carrot Cake or Eggless Carrot Cake, it deserves a cream cheese frosting. This is close, and doesn’t have the aftertaste I get with commercial dairy-free cream cheese. It can also be soy free.

  • 1 stick margarine, softened (or 1/2 cup Spectrum shortening)
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 TBS milk sub (or water)
  • 1 TBS lemon juice

Beat margarine in stand mixer. Add lemon juice.

Alternate 1c powdered sugar with 1 TBS milk sub until the desired taste/consistency is reached.

Frost like any buttercream-ish frosting
