Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe was adapted from the golden cupcake recipe in "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the Earth."

Ingredients You'll Need

For the fluffy vegan buttercream you will need:
1/2 C. Non-Hydrogenated Shortening
1/2 C. Non-Hydrogenated Margarine
3 1/2 C. Confectioners’ Sugar, sifted if clumpy
1 1/2 t. Vanilla Extract
1/4 C. Plain Soymilk or Soy Creamer


Beat shortening and margarine together until well combined and fluffy.

Add sugar and beat for about 3 more minutes.

Add vanilla and soymilk, beat for another 5 to 7 minutes or so until fluffy.

I set aside about 1 cup of the frosting, because this recipe makes about 4 cups, and added to it a few drops of orange oil and some orange food coloring.

Then I filled each cupcake with some orange frosting, using a pastry bag fitted with a straight tip.

Reserve the rest for decoration.

Frost the cupcakes with the buttercream however you like, with a spatula or by piping and then decorate with the orange frosting, which will not only look cute, but will add a pop of orange flavor to each bite.
