Rosemary Frosting!

It was my sister's birthday recently! and to celebrate, i made her claimed favorites of mine, and also completed one of my baking goals from back when i was in Ireland.
Perfecting my Strawberry Cupcakes with Rosemary Frosting!
I used a recipe from here for the cupcakes, because the ones i whipped up were more like gluten-free muffins. so i'll work a little more and create my own strawberry recipes, but this frosting is good!(the cupcakes were too!)

Rosemary Frosting

Ingredients (enough to frost 15 cupcakes)
  • 3 cups Vegan Cane Sugar
  • 1/4 + 1/8 cup Earth Balance Vegan Margarine
  • 2 T Almond Milk
  • 1 1/2 t Vanilla
  • 2 Sprigs of Rosemary
  • Roughly chop rosemary and mix into cane sugar. Allow to sit overnight in refrigerator, covered.
  • Blend half the sugar and incorporated rosemary in a blender until it is very fine and has the texture of powdered sugar, then sift into another bowl. Repeat with other half, it should make just over 3 3/4 cups of powdered sugar after sifting.
  • Beat vegan maragerine until fluffy, then add about half the powdered sugar mixture and beat until well incorporated.
  • Add 1 T of Almond milk, and vanilla, and beat until smooth. then add remainder of powdered sugar, and the reserved T of almond milk if needed to reach the desired consistency.
  • Pipe over the strawberry cupcakes listed above, or any other cupcakes!

so i'm sorry to say i haven't been as good at keeping raw as i hoped, but i did make these raw "healing roles" for my mom the other day! i just threw stuff together and made raw sushi, but it was so good!

my reading hasn't been too great, i've been very occupied with working and eating...:/ But i'm slowly making progress! i am going to work harder to eat more raw food the next few weeks - it's really what my body needs. 
wish me luck!
