Vegan Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes

I finally made my first vegan cupcake! I dedicate it to one of my best friends who is a vegan. They're mini Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes topped with a tofutti strawberry cream cheese frosting with hints of lemon and lime zest AND tequila. Sugar rim and a lime zest garnish. Perfect summer time flavor combo ;-)

I'll admit - the taste of that tofutti cream cheese by itself, was not so good... but after you add the powdered sugar and everything else.... much better!

Tequila is vegan friendly right?!


  1. Oh my how awesome! I've been dying to try making vegan cupcakes. I am even thinking of taking a vegan baking course. Yours look wonderful!

  2. Thanks Nikki :) It really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The cake part was really good, its the frosting part that I wanna work on (even though people said it tasted fine lol).

  3. These were delicious!
    Even non vegans thought they were the best cupcakes on earth!
    Home run cara!

  4. I've done a couple vegan cupcakes now and the non vegans absolutely love them...toffuti is pretty darn good! I mix mine with a bit of Earth Balance...

    Always love your flavor combos!

  5. Vegan cupcakes are all the rage. Cupcakes are already super-processed - why add dairy and eggs? FYI - tells you which liquors are veg friendly. Thanks sooo much for sharing this, @ScribeQuotes! --VeggieVal
