Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Well, there are no words other than to say, this shit is delicious.

Three little maids from school are we

Cupcake Recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World

1/2 c Earth Balance, room temp
3/4 c sugar
1 c 'milk'
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cupcake pan.
Mix together the milk and apple cider vinegar. Beat the margarine until fluffy, a few minutes. Beat in the sugar and continue to beat for a few minutes. Then add in the milk mixture and vanilla. Sift in all the dry ingredients and mix until no lump remain.
Divide among cups, bake for 20 - 22 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes before setting on a rack to cool completely before frosting.

They came out pretty flat. Perfect canvas for frosting, really.

Frosting also from Vegan Cupcakes but modified because I hate the mouthfeel of shortening

1 c Earth Balance (I used the new soy-free one, and it was great!)
3 1/2 c icing sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 - 3 tbsp 'milk'

Beat margarine until fluffy, then add in the icing sugar in 1 c increments, adding milk as needed. Beat in vanilla and beat until icing is smooth. I never got it perfectly smooth, probably because I used only margarine instead of half marg and half shortening.

Mix 2 tbsp sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon and dust top of frosted cupcakes with it. Nom.
