Vegan Buttercream – NO POWDERED SUGAR

This revolutionary buttercream recipe is the perfect thing for any kind of cake. It requires NO powdered sugar, and imitates the texture and taste of Swiss meringue and French buttercream. After several months of trial and error, I finally whipped up the perfect thing. Powdered sugar in large quantities can be very harmful, a fact that kept me from baking cakes as much as I used to before.  At least 2.5 cups of powdered sugar would be required for the same quantity of buttercream here which is over 70 teaspoons. In comparison, only 25 teaspoons of regular sugar is needed for this recipe. You have the flexibility of even reducing the amount of sugar in the recipe.
