The last time i made a batch of cuppies was for the RSPCA Cupcake Day but this weekend i felt the baking bug bite so i indulged and made a some vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting. Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World is my main source of sugary goodness although i was going to mix it up a bit and try to make a "vanilla slice" kind of cupcake. I added some rum essence to the cake batter but when it came time to make the frosting i realised i had no passionfruit, so i made some chocolate frosting instead.
These guys were hit with my friends and the rum essence is a nice twist on the regular vanilla taste.
I love making the frosting look like a soft serve ice cream, it makes me feel like i'm getting 2 treats for the price of one!
