It doesn’t get easier than this – or more yummy! This creamy frosting is the perfect slightly-tangy compliment to carrot cake or your favorite cupcake flavor.


  • 6 ounces silken tofu
  • 1/2 cup raw cashew pieces, soaked overnight
  • 3 Tbsp. refined coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. bourbon maple syrup or regular maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • splash or two of non-dairy milk


  1. Put all ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until silky smooth.
  2. Scrape into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until it firms up to a spreadable consistency.


Before I spread the frosting onto the cake, a pop it into the refrigerator to firm up. If you work with it right away, the frosting will slide down the sides of the cake. If necessary (depending on how hot the day and/or your kitchen is), work in stages to frost the cake, returning the cake and the frosting to the refrigerator.
