So good, it has to be bad!
These are mini and regular sized vegan golden vanilla cupcakes with cookies n' cream frosting (vegan fluffy buttercream frosting with chocolate sandwich cookies).
I used Health Valley sandwich cookies which taste almost like oreos.
I broke some of the cookies in half to put on top, and crushed some up to mix with the frosting for the others.

I brought these to work, and no one had a clue they were vegan. Num. Num.
Num. Num.

Instructions below are from the book, "VEGAN CUPCAKES TAKE OVER THE WORLD".

  • Step 1

    CUPCAKE:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line muffin pan with cupcake liners.

  • Step 2

    Whisk the soy milk and vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside a few minutes to get good and curdled.

  • Step 3

    If using margarine; sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl and mix.

  • Step 4

    In a seperate large bowl, use a handheld mixer at medium speed to cream the margarine and sugar for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy, but don't beat past two minutes. Beat in the vanilla and other extract, if using, then alternate beating in the soy milk mixture and dry ingredients, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times.

  • Step 5

    If using oil: Beat together the soy milk mixture, oil, sugar, vanilla, and other extracts, if using, in a large bowl. Sift in the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until no large lumps remain.

  • Step 6

    Fill cupcake liners 2/3rds of the way and bake for 20 to 22 minutes til done. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting.

  • Step 7

    FROSTING:
    Ingredients:
    1/2c nonhydrogenated shortening
    1/2c nonhydrogenated margarine (like Earth Balance)
    3 1/2c confectioners' sugar, sifted if clumpy
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    3/4c plain soy milk or soy creamer

    Beat the shortening and margarine together until well combined and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat for about 3 more minutes. Add the vanilla and soy milk, beat for another 5 to 7 minutes until fluffy.

  • Step 8

    Seperate the frosting into 2 parts. Crush up some of the cookies and put into 1/2 the frosting mixture. Spread the frosting onto the cooled cupcakes and add 1/2 or whole cookies to the top as you'd like.

I love this book! I had it at home and made the chocolate ones and the sexy vanilla low fat ones for Easter and no one knew they were vegan until I told them! They tasted so good it should have been a crime!
Good Job!
