Vegan buttercream frosting

Now, it is a little known fact (which I like to tell people about) that Oreo cookies are vegan-friendly.  I’m not sure if this is by design, or by accident, but it certainly make decorating (non-butter) buttercream frosting easier!  You can chop Oreos in half and add them to the top of the cupcakes for that little bit of extra ‘oomph’!

These recipes go perfectly with my vegan chocolate cupcakes, and you can amend it to have several variations.
