  1. To a large bowl, add the butter and use an electric hand mixer to beat the butter until soft and fluffy, it should become slightly lighter in colour.
  2. To the bowl add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder. Then add the soy milk, and vanilla extract. Start mixing at a low speed and then gradually increase until everything is well combined.
  3. Add the melted chocolate and mix it in with the other ingredients until fully combined. The frosting is now ready to use for your cakes and cupcakes!


  • The original amount of this chocolate buttercream frosts a 2 layered 8-inch cake, or about 24 cupcakes.


  • The frosting can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. When using the frosting again, make sure to bring it to room temperature again to soften and mix it through before using.
