Chocolate Vegan Cupcakes
Vegan- a vegetarian who omits all animal products from the diet.
Here are the Chocolate Vegan Cupcakes I made. I topped them with a vegan chocolate butter cream, chocolate coconut cookie crunchies, and Vere 75% cocoa chocolate.
What happened was, I got a call from Lisa Corona( I did another order for her here), she wanted to order LittleIvyCakes for her party this past weekend. When we were discussing what she wanted, I asked her if she would be into a meringue frosting. She said no, and explained that she was allergic to eggs and that she would not be eating the cupcakes she was ordering for her party. :( Ahhhhhhh.... This gave me an idea, I had never tried vegan cupcakes before, I have never done any vegan baking come to think of it. So this was the perfect opportunity. I searched for the perfect chocolate vegan cake recipe and came across this one from In My Life the recipe I used made 29 mini cupcakes. I gave Lisa about 10 Vegan cupcakes as a gift for her to enjoy. She was thrilled and I hope she liked them. :)
Everyone else that tried them thought they were really good. "She's done it again" said one of our friends. Haha. I though they were REALLY good too but, they just don't beat my chocolate souffle cupcakes-they're hard to beat. I will make these cupcakes though next time I have to go Chocolate & Vegan with cake. :)
Anyway here's some pictures of the cupcakes I made for Lisa:
Vanilla Bean White Chocolate Cupcakes topped with lime buttercream and summer fruit.

I am telling you, this is the best chocolate cake ever!!! And every one who tries it, falls in love instantly.THE END!
