In a stand mixer add the vegan butter and beat until light and airy. Add the vanilla bean paste.

9

Add the icing sugar gradually and continue to beat until fluffy.

Caramel sauce
10

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water, and syrup. Cook over medium-low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Allow simmering on low heat until the mixture has started to thicken and it has reached an amber color.
