      Excellent. We've recently decided to go vegan for one year. I'm blogging about it at

      My mother-in-law is also in town for Christmas, and she's gluten intolerant.

      So these cupcakes were great. I wouldn't even say, they're good considering. They're just good. With recipes like these maybe we'll continue to be vegan after the year.

      The first time I made these I joked that they tasted like punishment. I think it's the quinoa flour taste I don't like. But the frosting was aaaamaaaazzzing, only it turned out too soft and when I tried thickening it with soy powder it changed the taste/consistency. I could never get it quite right. That said, I am happy that there is an option for a gluten-free, sugar free and vegan cupcake. I would make it again, but not too often.

      For what these are (gluten-free, sugar-free cupcakes) they are EXCELLENT. They feel like a cupcake (perhaps a bit more spongy), which is so rare. My blood sugar levels are really sensitive to sugar, and my friend is celiac, so this was an excellent recipe for us! Thanks for posting.
