Rose Cupcakes

These are a pretty treat for someone special on Valentine’s Day, or something yummy on any day. The cake is moist but doesn’t contain any eggs or dairy. I also use this recipe for a 9×9 cake with a brown sugar, butter and coconut icing.

Chocolate Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups sifted flour
3 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
5 Tbsp. oil
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup cold water

Sift dry ingredients together. Combine water, oil, vinegar and vanilla and mix into the dry ingredients. Spoon into cupcake liners and bake for 20 minutes at 350F.



Buttercream Frosting Recipe

1/2 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons whipping cream

Beat butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar, vanilla and cream. Mix until smooth and creamy. Add more cream if necessary to make a consistency good for piping. Add paste food colouring if desired. I chose a soft peach colour. Use a Wilton 2D tip and piping bag to swirl the icing onto the cupcake in a rose pattern. Start at the centre and work your way to the outer rim.
