And this time, it’s cupcakes!
Hi — The Professional Vegan here! Two guest posts on Tales of Expansion — I feel so honored. I have been baking up a storm lately; I foresee the baking frenzy cooling down considerably, beginning right after this guest post. Today is my co-worker’s birthday, so I made vegan cookies & cream cupcakes to bring to work in honor of her.
I used a recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. Basically, the cupcakes are vegan chocolate cupcakes with a cup of coarsely chopped vegan Oreo-like chocolate sandwich cookies thrown in (I used Newman’s Own Creme-Filled Chocolate Cookies) topped with vegan “buttercream” frosting with half a cup of ground cookies thrown in — and then half a cookie on top of each cupcake. Here are the cupcakes pre-baking:
(Large lumps = cookie crumbles)
And after baking:
The frosting with ground cookies mixed in:
The final product is worth showing twice! Notice the half of a cookie on top of each cupcake, all set to go to work:
