Ingredients required for the vegan cheese frosting

1. ¼ cup of earth balance is needed

2. 1 cup of vegan cheese

3. Adequate amount of icing sugar

4. 1 spoon of vanilla extract

The icing is again simpler to make. The ingredients for the icing are mixed thoroughly and add required amounts of icing sugar until proper consistency is obtained. All you need to do is pipe the icing onto the cupcakes and make the desired swirls.

The beetroot can cause the discoloring of the frosting when it is kept for a longer time. Now the cupcakes are stored in the fridge, and it is kept at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.

So it is all about maintaining the required amount of ingredients while preparing the batter to prevent any mismatch in the final cupcakes with your expectations. You should not over mix or under mix the ingredients since it can affect the consistency of the batter.

Make sure that you fill the cupcakes accurately and do not overfill the pans. Ensure that the oven temperature is set at the required temperature since it can have an irreversible effect on the cupcakes, so it is better to be careful about the oven temperature before setting out to place the batter into the oven.

It is better to use high-quality cup liners to hold the cakes properly and prevent any other problems due to the liners. The entire process of baking these delicious cupcakes is quite interesting, and anyone who wants to try out this amazing recipe should try and become an expert in it.
