Vegan Cupcake class

I’ve been meaning to upload these pictures for a while. Back in February, me and a couple friends took a Vegan cupcake class from the Boston Center for Adult Education. The instructor was a vegan baker herself. There were only 6 of us in the class and apparently there are usually about 15. Our class size was great because it was so hands on. We also got to take home quite a few cupcakes that day since we had made 6 dozen!!

I don’t have the recipes of the cupcakes, but they look similar to what can be found in Vegan Cupcakes Take over The World.

We made: Blood Orange cupcakes (which came out of the oven green!) with Orange flavored buttercream. My friend Ren made these cute little oranges out of marzipan to put on top!
Then we made Chai cupcakes with a Cardamon buttercream. Some of the other girls in the class who had never piped frosting before decorated these and I think they look awesome!
And last, but DEFINITELY not least, we made chocolate cupcakes filled with raspberry preserves and ganache and topped with ganache. Yes, we put ganache INSIDE and ON TOP of the cupcake. These were my favorite. So amazing.

    Browned butter is amazing, especially in cookies. Sounds like another recipe I need to try soon!

      You’re definitely going to want to make these after you see what I did with them in a post coming up on Monday 😉

    Yeah, browned butter just makes everything taste that much better. I may overuse it just a little bit in my cooking though!

      No such thing as overusing browned butter.

    Between the browning butter and the fresh scent of baked cookies, your kitchen must have smelled marvelous.
