Hi,

It's my 20th anniversary today and I'm making a special dinner. Dessert is the Caramel-Apple-Spice Cupcakes from Veganomicon. Unfortunately, though I searched high and low, I couldn't find the soymilk powder (or any vegan milk powder) which is needed for the Caramel-penuche frosting at Whole Foods last night. Can you guys suggest a substitute? Something that I might have on hand? I have soy flour, will that work? I also have confectioner's sugar and soymilk, but these are already on the ingredient list in the recipe, so I don't think they're what's needed. Any substitution suggestions of something other than milk powder that could work would be welcome!

I think I just left it out altogether - the icing was a bit runny but really delicious. Add a bit less liquid and you're probably fine!

The only place I could find it was on Amazon. I'm really surprised Whole Foods doesn't carry it.

Happy Anniversary!

How much less liquid, if you had to guess?

Thanks! I was surprised too! If Whole Foods doesn't have it, I can't think of many brick and mortar stores that would. Maybe Surfas (a local restaurant supply store I have not been to) but I don't have the car today, so I can't get there in a reasonable amount of time.

So, I used less liquid but maybe I cut out too much, because I had to add more during the confectioner's sugar stage of the frosting. Then the frosting got a little too cool, and was a bit of a challenge to wrestle onto the cupcakes without breaking them. But I only ruined one, and slightly dinged one other. The batter made an extra cupcake, so I made the noble sacrifice of eating the one I had ruined before my husband got home. All's well that ends well!

I've always (successfully) used ground almonds for powdered soymilk because it's stupidly expensive.

Thanks Gulliver, I'll remember that in the future.
