Cupcakes

I totally want to make cupcakes with cream cheese frosting but don't dare because I'm scared if I eat the frosting I'll have an other GB attack Sad sigh..

These look so yummy though!

  • I'm eating sweet banana bread and reading this - now I wish it were carrot cake.

  • I'm still tempted to make them and only put a tiny bit of frosting on mine, and keep all the frosting in a separate container.

  • Could you make a vegan "cream cheese" frosting? 

    I found this:   http://vegetarian.about.com/od/veganfrostingrecipes/r/creamcheesefros.htm

    • 1 container Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
    • 1/2 cup soy margarine
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice

    Combine the cream cheese and margarine. Slowly add the powdered sugar, then vanilla and lemon juice.

    Here's a website where you can find out where to buy Tofutti:   http://tofutti.com/loc-search.asp

  • Do you know how Tofutti compares "fat" content wise to regular cream cheese?

    Also sad.. but it's a 3/4 hour drive away to get it Sad I wonder if the Neufchatel cream cheese would be better... less fat, is what it says online so I would think it should be... hmm.

    Not sure about the fat content, I just googled "vegan cream cheese recipes."  I think not being able to enjoy a cupcake constitutes a real emergency, and I wanted to help find a solution ASAP Stick out tongue

  • those looks good!  thanks for adding to my collection of cupcakes I'd like to make :)

    side note: do you think you'll have your gallbladder removed at some point?  I'd never heard anything about gallbladders before, but apparently my MIL is having her's out next month (H literally just told me yesterday!).  It's been hurting for the last couple years and there isn't anything obviously wrong (like cancer), so I guess they'll just take it out.
