Cupcakes!

There seems to be a cupcake obsession going on at the moment so I decided to join in.  D bought me this:

There is nothing to not like about this book...

As I hadn't tried any recipes from it yet, this week I was determined to make something.  I read how nice the Gingerbread Cupcakes were on Scottish Vegan Homemaker's old blog so decided to have a go.  I omitted the topping as this was a trial run but the cakes were delicious anyway, as verified by D.  The two main things I learned from baking these are that it is hard to measure golden syrup (apparently an ice-cream scoop helps), and that the remnants of raw cake mixture left in the bowl taste very nice.  I'm taking some of the cakes to work for our coffee break but won't mention the word v*gan until they've been eaten! 

Result!

They do look good, I bet your co-workers scoffed then without a second thought!
