Ciara’s Fluffy Dairy Free Vanilla Cupcakes made with Oat Milk (Gluten Free Optional)
If you ask us, one of the best gifts you can possibly give someone, including yourself, is a homemade cake. It basically stands as the deliciously edible definition of celebration! It’s also a bit frivolous in the best way possible. Not as hardy as bread. It’s more work than most bars or cookies. It’s just a wonderful way to say to someone let’s have some fun and celebrate you, shall we?
Our cousin, Ciara, who also happens to be Willa’s Great Granddaughter, seems to have inherited Grandma Willa’s cake baking abilities. She’s in middle school and has been baking for the past eight years. She frequently blows us away with her gluten free and dairy free creations!
What makes a cake amazing? Fluffy, moist, cakey, flavorful, just enough sweetness and not dry.
Would you ever expect a vegan gluten free cake to be amazing? Maybe not, but this recipe is delicious!
Now, a cupcake isn’t a cupcake without frosting! When you’re dairy free, you sort of assume that you have to give up wonderful things like buttercream frosting, but that’s not the case! Ciara has you covered with the creamiest and easiest to pipe dairy free, vegan buttercream frosting made with oat milk!
And she has not one but three variations: Chocolate Buttercream, Coconut Buttercream, and Maple Buttercream. All are vegan and dairy free!
