Thank you to the amazing Rosa Kafta, vegan baker extraordinaire at www.dearfriendbakery.com for using our cacao ingredients in her amazing cakes!
- Melt the Choc Chick Cacao Butter in a heatproof bowl over simmering water, or in 30 second pops in the microwave. Stir to melt completely. Set aside to cool slightly.
- In a large bowl, whisk the plant based block butter for a few minutes using a hand mixer. It should lighten slightly in colour.
- Sift one cup of icing sugar into the butter, and mix again until combined.
- Add the vanilla extract. Mix again.
- Sift in icing sugar half a cup at a time and mix. Continue doing so until you reach the sweetness/consistency you like.
- Slowly pour in the cooled and melted Choc Chick Cacao Butter and mix again. Inhale the chocolatey goodness. Any lumps or bumps in your buttercream should melt away.
- If the buttercream is too soft, put it in the fridge for an hour to firm up. If too firm, add a teaspoon or two of plant based milk and mix.
