Classic Vegan Birthday Cupcakes

Yesterday was my son’s 3rd Birthday (how time flies!)  As part of our celebration we prepared these Classic Vegan Birthday Cupcakes to share with the kids and educators at his school (daycare).    These dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free cupcakes bake up light, moist, fluffy, with just the right touch of sweetness – and they are school-friendly of course.

We topped these cuties with a simple vanilla cream icing and sprinkles for the kids.  Needless to say – the kids (and adults!) happily gobbled them up!
