Cheers to Vegan Sweets!
This cupcake would be the perfect ending to a falafel sandwich. It’s inspired by the icy cold rosewater-infused lemonade at Middle Eastern restaurants.

  • Step 1

    To make cupcakes:

    Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4) and line a cupcake pan with 12 liners.

    Cream together the margarine and sugars until smooth, then add yogurt, milk, lemon zest and juice, vanilla extract, and rosewater.

    Continue mixing until everything is combined. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk until just combined. The batter should be somewhat thick and fragrant.

    Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, distribute the batter, filling each cupcake liner a little over half full.

    Bake for 18 minutes or until the tops are firm and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  • Step 2

    To make frosting:

    Cream together margarine and shortening.

    Gradually add powdered sugar. When almost all the sugar is incorporated, add the lemon juice, rosewater (to taste), and lemon zest. Continue beating until completely smooth and fluffy, 8 to10 minutes.

    Spoon frosting into a pastry bag and pipe swirls atop your cupcakes. Garnish with lemon slices and rose petals.
