Step 1: Gather Supplies!

Picture of Gather Supplies!
As always when gathering ingredients, try to buy local, organic, and Eco-friendly!
These cupcakes are 100% Vegan, but you can always try substituting with butter instead of margarine; almond milk instead of soy...etc.

This recipe makes 24 mini cupcakes and about 6 "tamago" or "sashimi" cakes

Cupcake Ingredients:

1 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 Coconut Oil
1 cup Coconut Milk
3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 tsp Coconut Extract
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1/2 cup Toasted Coconut

Frosting Ingredients:

1/4 cup Non-hydrogenated Shortening
1/4 cup Non-hydrogenated Margarine
1 3/4 cups Powdered Sugar
3/4 tsp Vanilla
1/8 cup Soy MIlk
Lime Green Food Dye

Topping Ingredients:

-Shredded Coconut
-Chocolate  (vegan and fair trade)
-Various Fruits

Try different fruits in season or from your or a neighbor's garden. A little fruit goes a long way with these and you can be really creative! I have used the following successfully:

-Mandarin Oranges

Additional Supplies:

-Mixing Bowls
-Measuring Cups & Spoons
-Mini Cupcake Pan
-Mini Bread Loaf Pan  (mine was about 3x6 in )
-Mini Green Cupcake Liners (if you can't find these, you have other options )
-Optional: "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" (For these cupcakes I slightly altered the recipe on page 87 and used the frosting on page 142 GREAT BOOK!!! )
