I tried to make some buttercream frosting this morning with margarine sticks, soy milk, and powdered sugar (all at room temperature). it was going swimmingly until I added a little more powdered sugar, and then it seemed like the margarine began to seperate a bit from the frosting. it actually looked ok and tasted great, but the frosting ended up with a mottled type of coloring, like it was marbled. any idea what caused this? did I add too much powdered sugar and it just broke down the frosting on some level?
Can any fellow Australians here recommend (or point me in the direction of) a vegan bacon-esque product? I know Sanitarium have some slice type things, but as usual, they have egg white in them >_<
It's not that I'm craving bacon or anything specifically... I think it's the salty sandwich addition I'm after. I'd buy stocks in Tofutti if they went public, and there's nothing I love more than a Tofutti slice on a toasted sammie. But the addition of something salty, and perhaps smokey, would just push my tostie joy over the edge of vegan bliss.
