The best vegan icing recipes including royal icing, buttercream and Italian meringue frosting. There’s something to match any dessert you fancy!
If you’re a keen baker, you’ve probably made your fair share of vegan frostings and icings. Vegan buttercream is not too dissimilar because you can simply switch out the butter for dairy-free alternative and it’ll work pretty much the same.
For icings that use eggs, such as royal icing or meringue buttercream, it’s not so simple. Luckily, there are plenty of vegan icing recipes that look and taste just as delicious.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at these tasty recipes. I’ve teamed up with some other food bloggers to bring you this list of all the best flavours. I hope you enjoy!
Let's start with a classic, shall we? This chocolate buttercream is rich, creamy and full of chocolatey flavour. Pair it with chocolate traybake or cupcakes to take them to the next level!
Strawberry buttercream is a little more complicated than it first appears but this recipe is beautifully soft and creamy. It uses freeze-dried strawberry powder for maximum flavour and the best texture. Goes well with chocolate strawberry cupcakes.
Vegan cream cheese frosting can be tricky to get right but this recipe is foolproof and super easy. It has a tangy, sweet, cheesy flavour and a beautifully creamy texture. Pair it with carrot cake, red velvet cupcakes or banana cake.
