This vegan chocolate frosting is the perfect topcoat for vegan chocolate cupcakes, vegan chocolate cake, or your standard yellow cake. But the fun doesn’t have to end there. Sandwich it between sablé cookies or swap out the dulce de leche in this alfajores recipe.
Game plan: Make the frosting just before you’re ready to frost a cooled cake; it’s soft to work with at first, but the frosting will harden slightly as it sits at room temperature.
