So, it turns out I really like baking.
And one afternoon I was cruising about the Australian vegan blogosphere and came across ML at Drossolaila baking the apricot glazed almond cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and I thought about them constantly for a couple of days. I think it was the photo, which tells you the importance of good photography!
So when I was inspired to do some baking a few days later, I knew exactly what I wanted to bake.
These were good! Not too difficult to make, though I had trouble with an ingredient or two and had to make substitutions. They held up to the ravages of time, and were still tasty three days later, which I like in a cupcake. And they looked cute! It didn't make as much batter as I thought it would, and they were very sweet, but I liked them. And it was nice to come back to VCTOTW, which I avoid for long stretches of time between failures or disappointments, and have something nice.
Maybe I will add dried apricot pieces to the batter next time, though that might make it over-apricoty.
They're in green pattycake papers because I baked them the day before the federal election, and I had hopes for the Australian Greens.
A++, would make again!
