Crimson Velveteen Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World
Last night, I made my first batch of cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. It was a tough decision, but I decided to start with the Crimson Velveteen Cupcakes (page 55) because while I’ve had a few bad ones, I love a good red velvet cupcake. They turned out a beautiful chocolaty red shade, visibly fluffy and moist. To top these red velvet gems, I chose to make the Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting (page 158). Wow, that stuff is good. I probably could have sat down with the bowl of frosting and a spoon, but that would have resulted in one mega intense tummy ache!
Alright, so from this slapped-on frosting job you’d never guess I used to work in a bakery and decoratively frost hundreds of cupcakes a day, but it was getting late, I didn’t feel like washing my pastry bag, and admittedly, I was getting anxious to eat one! So since they were for our own personal consumption, I decided to use the good ol’ plop it on with a spatula method of frosting. Finally, time to inhale sample the goods! These cupcakes are absolutely amazing. The cake is so moist and fluffy, and the frosting so rich and creamy. I can’t wait to impress the nonvegans in my life with these! Now the only question is, which cupcake recipe should I try next?
