Baby Shower Cupcakes (Vegan Friendly)

"I made these cupcakes for my sister-in-law's Baby Shower. She wasn't finding out what the sex of her baby was until the birth so I used that for the frosting idea (see the picture). I am a strict vegetarian who rarely gets to enjoy special occassion treats so these are vegan so I get to join in the fun :)"

<p>I love, love, love to cook. Most of all I love to cook for friends and family because it is such an awesome feeling to bring the people that mean the most to me through such an essential ingredient for life... FOOD! I am a vegan the switch opened up the world of cooking in a way I never imagined! People constantly ask me 'what do you eat?' and I can confidently tell them that if they were to leave meat and dairy behind they would find an enormous world of food out there that they have never heard of! And it is all more delicious and nourishing than animal products. My ultimate goal is to shake my 9 to 5 office job and become a caterer or open my own restaurant and I am forever dreaming of my big lottery win that will allow me to do this.</p>
