1. Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes

After some learn that I’m vegan, they make fun of me for eating rabbit food. After these people realize that I eat more things besides lettuce and carrots, maybe I’ll make them these carrot cake cupcakes from Choosing Chia.

What’s wrong with carrot recipes? After all, they’re delicious.

2. Vegan Raspberry and White Chocolate Cupcakes

We grew raspberries on the family farm by the garden until someone accidentally ran over our raspberry bushes with the riding lawn mower. Make raspberry white chocolate cupcakes from The Little Blog of Vegan.

Here are more raspberry recipes.

3. Apple Pie Cinnamon Cupcakes

Next spring, I’ll plant more apple and pear trees on my new acreage. I’ll enjoy eating apple pie cinnamon cupcakes from Vegan Yack Attack until then.

Who else likes apples?

4. Vegan S’mores Cupcakes

I tried a vegan s’more kit earlier this fall, and it was gross. I would rather have s’more cupcakes from Pies and Tacos.

For more inspiration, make these vegan s’more recipes.

5. Chai Cupcakes With Maple Buttercream

Maple is one of my favorite fall flavors. If you like it too, I recommend baking chai maple cupcakes from Allergylicious.

6. Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I have siblings who scoop and eat peanut butter out of a jar. Bake chocolate peanut butter cupcakes from The Banana Diaries if you love peanut butter.

7. Vegan Coconut Cupcakes

It’s evident that you’re at a high school speech tournament when you find some students reenacting the coconut scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail in between their speech events.

If you would rather reserve coconut for baking, have coconut cupcakes from ShortGirlTallOrder.

I made these red velvet cupcakes from Nora Cooks for my cats’ Halloween-themed birthday party. I made them into vampire cupcakes, and my guests and I loved them.
