I got an invite to a friends engagement party and was wondering what kind of gift I should buy for them. I spoke to friend who is also going to the engagement party and she said she was thinking about making some cupcakes for them. She asked me why I was not doing some as I’m the baker in our friend group but my friend whose engagement party it is, is vegan and I have never made vegan cupcakes before so I was a bit apprehensive until my friend suggested that we make them together.
So, this recipe has a few items that I have never brought so I did wonder where I could find them. Luckily, I could get the free-egg mayonnaise at Tesco in the Free From isle as well as the vegan margarine.
My friend really loved these and actually said this was the nicest gift she got. As it was something different and personal for them. They turned out amazingly and super surprised as the consistancy of these cupcakes given that it is not a usual cupcake recipe. She also loved them as her mum had made just a regular cake for the engagement party which was not vegan friendly so she could was happy as she could still have some cake.
The fondant spells out Mr and Mrs to be. Me and my friend wanted to do an engagement still topping and what better way then to use fondant.
