Fluffilious easter cupcakes

Easter wouldn't be easter without pastel colors. That includes foods too! Especially dessert. I have been on a rampage to find a vegan dairy-free cupcake. I have never made a cupcake before but I don't think I have ever had a real cupcake before. I think it's been literally 8 years since I had a hostess cupcake and honestly I don't even think that you can classify that as a cupcake. Anyways, I was looking through Vegan Cupcakes take the world and finally found THE perfect cupcake. I wanted one that was moist and one that was white in color because I wanted the frosting to be the attention stealer in this easter cupcake. It had all the elements I wanted and I had ALL the ingredients! Score!

CLASSIC GOLDEN CUPCAKES from 'Vegan Cupcakes take the World'
1 C soy milk
1 ts apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 C flour
2 tbs cornstarch
3/4 ts baking powder
1/4 ts bs
1/2 ts salt
1/2 C canola oil
3/4 C sugar
2 ts vanilla + 1/4 ts extra vanilla (cause I didn't have another extract the recipe called for)
I whisked the soy and vinegar together and let it sit while I combined the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.
Beat the soy mixture, oil, sugar and vanilla together in a mixer and then sift in the flour mixture into the wet mixture.
Then pour batter into lined muffin tins only 3/4 way full at most. Bake at 350 degrees F for 22 minutes.

The frosting was amazing. The recipe came from Cupcake Bakeshop. It was an amazing texture. It's a marshmellow frosting. I could almost just eat the frosting itself. :-D I did a few spoonfuls, that's not cheating right? I separated the frosting into three bowls and colored them teal, yellow and pink. Then I dyed some coconut green for the color of grass and lyed some peanut M&M's on top to resemble the good ole easter eggs.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter! We went to early service at 8:30am and it was pretty decently packed for that ealy of a service but it was a good one and the rest of the day I just took it easy while brandon did his thesis. Actually I have started reading Harry Potter, the first book since I absolutely do not like the movies but everyone seems to rave about it, so I decided to give the book a shot. I am actually really enjoying it so far. It is wayyyy different from the movies! Ahh..back to work tomorrow...and so life is back on track again.
