Cheap way of making frosting for cupcakes

Magreth | Apr 11, 201601:15 PM     23

Hi, i am trying to open a business of cupcakes in Africa and i have been practicing how to make them and they turn out perfect. The problem comes to the COSTING. Just today i have found out that my butter cream frosting is expensive, its twice amount of the cupcake cost. So i was wondering if there is substitutes or other way of making a good frosting without butter. Since butter its is expensive here.
