Happy Friday! TGI(my birthday weekend)F =)
Wednesday night I got a box of funfetti mix and a jar of frosting for the kiddos, since that's what they usually have I figured I couldn't go wrong. I then baked up some vegan funfetti cupcakes for the grownups.
I'm not a vegan, but for some reason I've had the urge to try and bake vegan goodies, like these cinnamon rolls. Maybe I'm going through a rebellious baking stage?
|Shane and I had a vegan vs. box taste test. He said they tasted the same!|
Last night I attempted to make some homemade frosting. My first batch was just weird. I don't know if it was the Earth Balance or something else but it tasted off. I was going for a traditional vanilla butter cream but it was funky tasting.
I don't think frosting and I get along. I love to eat it, but I can't quite seem to make my own.
After that debacle I frosted the 48 mini boxed funfetti cupcakes with store bought frosting but was having a dilemma about my vegan cupcakes. During my cupcake research fest I had stumbled upon an avacado "buttercream" frosting.
Did I dare? ...It's my birthday and I do what I want! And the cupcake liners were blue and green so avacado green frosting would look cute.
I did a lot of baking/frosting last night. Hence, this is what my sink looked like as I got into bed.
It's okay though, I love baking cupcakes!
I hope everyone enjoys the vegan cupcakes. I only frosted a handful with the avacado butter cream and did the rest with store bought frosting.
Do you bake co-workers and friends treats? Do you "healthify" or "veganize" recipes that you share with others?
