Hi I have just attempted to make the mouse topping for vegan cupcakes first. I am from Scotland so my ingredients might not be quite the same. I have found the mouse to be very bitter and might have to add more sweetening. I got my ingredients from Whole foods store in Scotland. I started with morinaga firm silken tofu, unsweetened soya milk, pure vanilla extract, whole foods 100% maple syrup and tropical source semi sweet chocolate chips. Have I gone wrong somewhere. Will make cupcakes tomorrow. Thanks Val

Delicious(: I used the mousse as a filling for my two layered cake, I have not tried it yet, but I was wondering how long the mouse would last on the cake after I put it in the refrigerator?(:

These were delicious. I made them for my dad's surprise birthday party since he is a vegan. The guest didn't know that they were vegan. I added 1/4 cup coffee and took out that much soymilk to give the chocolate a deeper note. The topping recipe does make too much for the 12 cupcakes and I used a bag to top the cupcakes with. I had several people at the party ask for the recipe.

These are FANTASTIC! Absolutely perfect cupcakes! I made the frosting too but used it on the vanilla cupcakes I made. I used a vegan cream cheese frosting on these chocolate cupcakes. Delicious! The mousse frosting is so good I will use it for this recipe next time! Thank you so much for sharing! I will definitely make these again!!!

Ooh, these are indeed soooo good! I made them for a party of very traditional foodies and no one guessed they were anything but yummy. The cupcake itself is excellent, and the topping -- mmmmmm.... And I did double the cake recipe. Thanks!

These cupcakes were fantastic! I made these for a a local cupcake contest and people loved them. I addded some instant coffee to the mix to give them a mocha flavor and it was delicious. I realized after my first try that the recipe makes enough frosting for 2 batches of cupackes, though I didn't mind having some frosting left over because it is great in a bowl by itself. Thank you for this great recipe!
