Baking | Vegan Halloween Themed Cupcakes

Thursday, 27 October 2016

I admit that I am pretty awful at decorating cupcakes, I desperately need to buy some piping bags... This was my first attempt at making vegan cupcakes and I personally think they taste amazing! I checked that everything I put into them was vegan before making them as well, such as the food colouring. This recipe also uses American measurements.



Ingredients
Cupcakes:
1 cup of non-dairy milk
1/2 cup of vegan butter
1 cup of caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 cup of bicarbonate soda

Icing:
1/2 cup of vegan butter
2 1/2 cups of icing sugar
1.4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Green food colouring
Sprinkles

1 Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line 12 cupcake cases in a tray. I ended up having some mixture left over, so if you a second cupcake tray, it might be worth putting a couple more cases in it.

 2Add the butter, sugar and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl and beat together until fluffy. 

3Next, add the flour, bicarbonate soda, baking powder and mix together until there are no lumps and the mixture is a smooth consistency. 

4Divide the mixture evenly between the cupcake cases, make sure you do not overfill the cases as you don't want cupcake mixture to spill over the edge of the cases.

5Place your cupcakes in the oven and cook until they are golden brown, I cook them for roughly 15 minute. I like to stick a wooden skewer into them to see if they are cooked, if it comes out without any mixture on, then they are done.  

6While the cakes are cooking I like to make a start on the icing, place the softened vegan butter into a large mixing bowl and mix until fluffy. I added 2 and a 1/2 cups of icing sugar but I did add a tiny bit more for taste. Pour that into the bowl and add the vanilla essence, mix until the ingredients are well combined.  

7To make them look slightly more Halloweeny, I added green food colouring to the icing. 

8Once your cakes are fully baked and have cooled down, add the icing and sprinkles, you will then have your vegan Halloween themed cupcakes ready to eat!



I am desperately trying to start baking and blogging more vegan recipes, I had loads of Halloween ones planned but making Minnie ears took up a lot of my time! I'm hoping to have more up for Christmas!
