I have to admit that I didn’t have very high expectations when I decided to create a vegan cupcake recipe. It seemed almost impossible to make a delicious frosted cupcake without eggs and butter.
But, these cupcakes are BETTER than my regular cupcakes. I don’t know what that says about my regular cupcakes. Both are delicious. I am absolutely surprised by how amazing these cupcakes are. They do not taste like anything is missing.
My Mom took several cupcakes to a bake sale. Her vegan coworkers were so excited to have a dessert option and the feedback was really positive. They wanted the recipe!
And look how gorgeous these cupcakes are. Definitely the shining star on your holiday dessert table!
