Whether you're mad about confectionery or just a general cooking enthusiast, you probably love cupcakes. Easy to make, cupcakes can look and taste truly spectacular. But sometimes we need recipes that let you cook classic dishes without certain basic ingredients, for example to make them suitable for people with allergies and intolerance. This is where things can get a little complicated.

Eggs, which usually feature in most desserts and sweets, are one such ingredient, but they can actually be replaced by other ingredients. If you've already found a recipe for egg-free Tiramisu, we also want to go a step further and offer you a great option to make egg free icing, so you can decorate your egg-free cupcakes or cakes.

Steps to follow to make this recipe:

The first thing you must do to make egg free icing is to make a syrup based on sugar and water, like any syrup - which you will then add to the other ingredients. To do this, use one part water to two parts sugar, it's very easy! Take a look at our article on how to make syrup if you need more details.


Then, you need to soften and beat the butter. We recommend that you take it out of the fridge for a while beforehand, to soften the butter and make this job easier. For this task, we recommend using an electric whisk or blender to get a cream-like texture.


Then, add the vanilla essence or whichever flavor you want to make your icing with. The quantity you use is also down to personal taste, whether you like a subtle or intense flavor. Continue beating so that all of the icing absorbs the flavor.


If you plan to colour your egg-free icing, add liquid food colouring in any colour you like. As with the favouring, the colour you end up with will depend on how few or how many drops you add.


And to finish your buttercream icing, all you need to do now is slowly add the syrup that you made earlier - mixing it in bit by bit to give your egg-free icing a soft, smooth texture. Next, find out how to make icing without sugar.

You can add this icing to your delicious cupcakes or to decorate easy cakes!
