As a lover of cheese, I used to think eating vegan was something akin to punishment, but a friend of mine couldn’t eat dairy for six months because her baby was allergic. She made vegan shortbread cookies that were so delicious that it opened my mind. Then, I got a Sunset magazine with a recipe from famed vegan baker Chloe Coscarelli for Chocolate Strawberry Cupcakes. I made them as an experiment, not quite believing that they could taste good (especially because vinegar is an ingredient), but they were delicious! When I make these again, I will probably just make regular frosting because I’m not vegan and I think shortening is more unhealthy than butter, but the shortening frosting did taste pretty good.
I won’t copy the recipe here because you can get it from Chloe Coscarelli’s website, but I will include a picture of one of my cupcakes!
Looks pretty good, right?
