Milk Bar Birthday Cake–#3 The Cake Frosting Layer

  • Cook Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


This frosting tastes just like the tubs of frosting from the grocery store…sweet, tart, a little salty. I suppose you could skip the glucose syrup or citric acid, but the weird ingredients are what make this fun. 




  1. Beat the margarine, shortening, and cream cheese together in a mixing bowl with the paddle attachment until creamy. 
  2. Beat in the glucose syrup and corn syrup until smooth. 
  3. Add the powdered sugar, salt, baking powder, citric acid and vanilla extract.
  4. Mix until creamy and fluffy. If it seems really runny, you can add a little more powdered sugar. 
  5. Store refrigerated for a week.
