Vegan (ladybug) Cupcake Cones

#1 Postby veganmadre » Sun Oct 16, 2005 4:59 am

Title confuse you? It's all about the intrigue!

To start, make the batter as follows:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup dry sweetener/ vegan sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt (try this amount, can go to 1/2)
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon nice, mild tasting vinegar
1 tablespoon vanila
1/4 teaspoon almond extract


Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients - mix well until smooth and no lumps.

Place plain cake cones into a muffin tin. Fill cones 1/2 way with batter.

Image

Gently place muffin tin in the preheated oven. Allow to cook about 30 minutes. Check middle with a toothpick to assure the center is cooked. Toothpick should be clean when removed from center.

Image

Begin "creating" ladybugs by taking vegan "oreo" cookies and carefully removing the tops. With a small, SHARP knife, slice the tops in half.

Image

Reassemble cookies by placing the tops as shown in picture. Use colored food gel to place ladybug "spots" and eyes. A decorative icing would be more dramatic for the spots but I threw this together last minute to conteract the dumb nonvegan cake my daughter's grandmother purchased for "appearances" :evil:

Image

Make a frosting. I always just make a buttercream frosting - substituting vegan margarine and soy milk. See my cinnamon roll thread for my frosting recipe. Tinting the frosting green would have been cool, I think. Scoop a spoonful on top of each cupcake. Use a "ladybug" to 'smoosh" the frosting down by placing it direct on top. Whalah.
