Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

It’s official. I no longer have a toddler! What do I classify him as? A child? A pre-schooler? Either way, I am a little sad that he is growing up, next thing I know he’ll be leaving for college…insert dramatic tears.

Those who know this little man, know he is Batman. When you’re Batman, you need a Batman party and thus the vegan chocolate cupcakes began.

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Makes approx. 14-17

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup coconut oil (soft)

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vinegar

1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Then add in the water, coconut oil and vanilla; once combined add in the vinegar. Grease or line the cupcake tins, fill half way. Bake for 18-22 minutes.

These cupcakes are soft and fudge-y and got rave reviews from those who ate them!

Vegan Batman Cupcake

To turn these into Batman cupcakes, make vegan frosting or use a store-bought vegan frosting, like this one from Duncan Hines. Mix the frosting with a yellow food coloring, until you get a golden-yellow. Frost the cupcakes. Then use a batman cookie cutter, like this one from Etsyย and cut out Batman shapes for the top of your cupcakes. Fondant would probably work, especially in black, but I wanted to use something a little tastier. I tried this with fruit roll ups, which worked great but I couldn’t find a color that I liked, so I ended up using fruit leather!

Batman Cupcakes

If you’re wondering how I made the cupcake stand, well shh… don’t let my secret out ๐Ÿ˜‰ I took boxes we had lying around the house, I think the bottom layer was our battleship game…hehe, and I wrapped them with this awesome polka-dot wrapping paper from Target. Then I wrapped a black (thicker) ribbon around the boxes and then a yellow one on top. I cut outย the logo from card-stock paper and glued it on with my hot glue gun. Easy peasy!
