Hi, I live in a hot climate, often above 25 degrees celsius, I'm trying to make cupcake frosting and the coconut oil version will melt if the weather is hot? How do I make vegan shortening with deodorised cocoa butter?
Hi apple15! The frosting will melt if the weather us much hotter than 25C. I'm still working on a cocoa butter version and don't have it finished yet. In the meantime, you can try making my latest recipe of Vegan Butter using a cocoa butter base that you should be able to use for a frosting instead of shortening: http://www.veganbaking.net/fats/vegan-butters/818-regular-vegan-butter-cocoa-butter-base
