Matcha Frosting @ The Misfit Baker

Matcha Frosting

Matcha is a favorite flavour of mine. Here I’ve used it to make a tasty and pretty frosting. That beautiful green colour is created entirely by the matcha powder.

Makes enough to frost 12 – 18 cupcakes.

 

Matcha Frosting @ The Misfit Baker

 

 

Matcha Frosting

1/2 cup Margarine (I uses Earth Balance)

1/2 cup Shortening

2 tbsp Non-Dairy Milk (I used coconut)

4 tsp Matcha Powder

3 cups Icing Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla

 

Stir together the milk and the matcha powder. Set aside.

Beat the margarine and shortening until thoroughly combined. Blend in the matcha mixture.

Beat in the sugar (sift it first if it is lumpy). Add vanilla and beat until light and creamy (3 – 5 minutes). If needed add more milk or sugar (a small amount at a time) beating well after each addition.

Chocolate Frosting

 

Chocolate Frosting

1 cup Non-Dairy Milk

3 tbsp All-Purpose Flour

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 cup Margarine

1/2 cup Shortening

1 cup less 2 tbsp Granulated Sugar

2 tbsp Cocoa Powder

Whisk together the milk and flour. In a pot over, medium heat, cook (stirring continuously) until mixture becomes a thick roux. Remove from heat and allowing to cool completely (I cool in the refrigerator to speed things up).

When roux has cooled, add vanilla and beat until smooth. Set aside.

Beat together margarine and shortening. Add cocoa powder (sift if lumpy) and sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add cooled roux mixture and beat until thoroughly combined (3-4 minutes). Remember to scrape the sides of the bowl periodically.
