Vegan-Friendly Cupcakes

So I actually stole this recipe from A Beautiful Mess,
But it is absolutely amazing!
What you'll need for the cupcake:
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar. 
What you'll need for the icing:
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla
Preheat oven to 350
Simply mix dry ingredients together, mix wet ingredients together, and then combine both together.
Bake for 22-24 minutes (or until a toothpick can come out of the cupcake clean)

Slightly melt butter, add vanilla, and add powdered sugar a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

To give it a little extra pep,
You can add fun things to the cupcakes.
I took a few poked a hole in the middle of the cupcake, added chunky peanut butter, and then sprinkled the top with chocolate shavings.
For a few others I put nutella in the middle and sprinkled the top with chocolate powder.
Mmmm so freaking good.
(Not too bad I must say for my first time cupcake making!)

OH & PS,
If you're first batch of cupcakes falls apart,
try spraying the pan and then adding a little powdered flour over the spray so the cupcakes won't stick.
Then make cake balls:

All you have to do to make these is smash the broken cake together, add a little of the icing to the mix, roll out small balls of cake mix, & then put in the fridge until the cake hardens a little.
Melt some chocolate chips in the microwave and add a little oil to the chocolate to keep it from hardening quickly.
Simply roll the cake balls in the chocolate then put back into the fridge until the chocolate has reached a solid consistency.

Have fun baking!
