Ingredients

For the fluffy vegan buttercream you will need:
1/2 C. Non-Hydrogenated Shortening
1/2 C. Non-Hydrogenated Margarine
3 1/2 C. Confectioners’ Sugar, sifted if clumpy
1 1/2 t. Vanilla Extract
1/4 C. Plain Soymilk or Soy Creamer


Beat shortening and margarine together until well combined and fluffy.


Add sugar and beat for about 3 more minutes.


Add vanilla and soymilk, beat for another 5 to 7 minutes or so until fluffy.


I set aside about 1 cup of the frosting, because this recipe makes about 4 cups, and added to it a few drops of orange oil and some orange food coloring.


Then I filled each cupcake with some orange frosting, using a pastry bag fitted with a straight tip.


Reserve the rest for decoration.


Frost the cupcakes with the buttercream however you like, with a spatula or by piping and then decorate with the orange frosting, which will not only look cute, but will add a pop of orange flavor to each bite.
