Little cakes

I’ve spent this morning icing little cakes to take to Naomi’s for afternoon tea.

This is the first time I’ve made vegan cupcakes and really, I was surprised at how easy it was, and how good the results were. Considering they have no eggs or dairy in them, they taste remarkably like normal cupcakes. The only difficult part was finding decorations for the tops that didn’t have egg white in them, and figuring out how to colour the icing without resorting to cochineal. But a few drops of red cordial seem to have worked well (it contains a synthetic colourant called carmoisine).

Aren’t they adorable?
