These are probably one of the best cupcakes I've ever had and they're perfectly seasonal, too.
They're super flavourful and have the best texture - light with a slight chew, especially on the outer edge of each top.
We got a big thumbs up from everyone in the house and I'm sure if you try them too, well,
a) you'll be totally blissing out
b) after you've fully recovered from the utter scrumptiousness of these cupcakes, you'll be able to give that thumbs up
You can find the recipe in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World on page 53.

Holiday baking is the best and we've finally been able to get into the swing of things so look out for more festive baked goods!!!
