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.
