Cupcakes are the perfect mini cakes. You can take the bottom off and put it over the frosting to have a little cake sandwich. Or you can lick all the frosting off then go for the cake. You could even take full bites of it so that you get just enough cake and frosting all at once. They’re fun to eat and they’re perfectly sweet, smooth, creamy, and delicious. Check out these 15 vegan chocolate cupcake recipes from the Food Monster App!
