White Russian Cupcakes


It feels like it has been forever since I have made cupcakes. My lofty dreams of being a vegan pastry chef, creating tons and tons of awesome cupcakes and pastries, seems pretty unattainable given the amount of time I had left over at the end of the day to bake (and my paranoia of getting fat!), so I am happy I baked these just in time to have sitting on the kitchen table for the boyfriend to eat after returning home from visiting graduate school in DC. After finding this recipe at Cute and Delicious, I knew I had to make it. Not only that, but make them, and then consume them while watching The Big Lebowski.

The best part about these is that they actually taste like White Russians. Not only the Kahlua and vodka infused frosting, but the cupcake batter itself. The double batter recipe made for a charming looking cupcake once you bit into it, noticing the darker and lighter layers. They rose nice and high as well.

The frosting was DELICIOUS, my only regret is that I did not have Earth Balance in the refrigerator despite thinking I did, so I was stuck with using margarine, which made the frosting runny and less visually appetizing. But hey, they look kind of messy, and let’s face it, The Dude was not exactly a neat, well put together guy. He would appreciate these cupcakes, and I would totally make them again.
