I began researching vegan dessert recipes and stumbled upon Vegan Cupcake Recipes. This website provides a wide range of recipes for cupcakes and frostings for vegans and vegetarians, or anyone who would like to try these delicious desserts. I will be making this recipe soon and give my feedback soon after!
*Note, I tried to decipher what is on top of this cupcake pictured below with the chocolate chips and vanilla icing. I suppose it is either minced candied walnuts or minced peanuts. What do you think?
