Ultimate Vanilla Cupcakes

Divvies Vanilla Frosting

Makes 2 cups


  • 1 1/4 cups unsifted confectioner’s sugar, plus 1/2 cup unsifted confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free margarine, chilled
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons rice milk


  1. Combine the 1 1/4 cups of unsifted confectioner’s sugar, margarine, salt, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatula, and continue to mix for 1 minute.
  2. Add the rice milk and continue mixing on medium speed. With mixer running, slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar until you achieve the desired sweetness. Beat an additional 4 to 5 minutes, until creamy.
  3. Use to frost cooled cupcakes or cake.

Tip: You can freeze unfrosted cupcakes so you always have something special for last-minute occasions.
