Today is one of my dear friend's birthdays, we celebrated last night at her house with dinner and dessert, birthday cupcakes of course! I had been looking for an excuse to try out a new cupcake recipe, and this one fit the bill perfectly (read: chocolate). Here are my Cookies and Cream Cupcakes from VCTOTW.
I have seen these cupcakes on many of your blogs, and have always wanted to try them out. They were pretty fast and easy to make, I had two hours after getting home from work. The best part was I didn't have to deal with piping the frosting (which I still haven't gotten the hang of!), and instead just plopped a huge gob of frosting on top. The fluffy vegan frosting on these cupcakes is divine so light and smooth. Plus, the crunch of the cookies both in the cupcakes and in the frosting makes for a nice textural contrast, more plainly worded, just a damn tasty cupcake!! John proclaimed that these are my best cupcakes yet. He was amazed at the lack of a hint soy flavor (his most common complaint about vegan desserts .... although he's only complained once or twice). I was bad last night and ate two, must try to have more will power tonight.
