    I have a wedding cake coming up quickly for a strict vegan bride set on having a rolled frosting. I have found lots of helpful recipes for cakes and other types of icings but none specifically for rolled. Can anyone help?

    I'm not a pastry wiz but I seemed to recall that basic fondant is vegan. Did a little searching and found this...

    For the buttercream, just use ( I hate to say it) hydroginated veggie shortening.

    I know that vegans hate things that are over processed but if they want a wedding cake that will remotely resemble a classic cake they will have to make some exceptions.
