A vegan cream cheese frosting recipe that uses spices and vinegar to give it a cream cheese taste. A great recipe to have when you can't find vegan cream cheese or just don't like the taste of vegan cream cheese.

An important note about this recipe. You must use Earth Balance Original Buttery Spread because it has a higher fat content. If you try to use Smart Balance Light it will be too thin.
