Buttercream Frosting Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 10 mins
10 tbsp powdered sugar/icing sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup vegan butter, refrigerated then thawed to soften a little I used Melt brand
1-2 tsp oat milk oat milk has a sweet taste, other plant based milks may taste a little different
a lot of sprinkles! optional, if you want it funfetti flavor and not plain vanilla
1Make sure the vegan butter is not melted. Otherwise, the frosting won't hold. It shouldn't be rock solid either, but just softened a little.
2Add all ingredients to a large bowl (except the oat milk), and attach the bowl to a stand mixer. Alternatively, whisk everything by hand.
3Keep mixing until the icing comes together. Now you can add in some oat milk depending on if you want it a little softer or need some more liquid.
4Once you reach the desired consistency, you can refrigerate it to firm it up.
5If you aren't using it the same day, refrigerate in an airtight container to store. Use on baked goods or eat as you wish!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
