What do mums love more than homemade cards? Homemade Treats, of course! And cupcakes are a simple way of showing your appreciation, no matter how old you are. Here are our top recipes for vegan cupcakes.

For basic vegan sponge and vegan buttercream recipes, you’ve got to check out trained pastry chef Flo’s recipes here — it's perfect if you’re planning to play around with different flavours or decorations and it's easily adaptable! But if you have some more specific flavour combos in mind, check out these vegan cupcake recipes.

These strawberry vanilla cupcakes from Loving It Vegan are super simple but still classy and lovely to look at (and definitely eat). A simple vegan sponge paired with a vanilla and strawberry frosting and a slice of strawberry makes this an accessible recipe that will absolutely delight vegans and non-vegans alike.

Mother’s day is a celebration, so why not go bold with these bright and beautiful funfetti cupcakes? This one bowl recipe from The Minimalist Baker is both washing-up friendly and also a great one to make with small children too! The result is light and sweet cupcakes that will go down a treat. 

Red velvet cupcakes

Red velvet cupcakes are an all-time favourite of many of us, and this plant-based recipe is deliciously decadent. The red velvet frosting is made of vegan butter and cocoa powder, but with a dash of food colouring in it, the chocolate flavour will be a (great) surprise.

Sometimes, the only correct cupcake is a chocolate cupcake, and in those times this recipe should be on your radar. The sponge is moist and fluffy, while the icing adds even more chocolatey and sweet goodness to the bake. You can have them ready in as quickly as 30 minutes, which is definitely a winner in our book.

Salted caramel cupcakes

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Sweet and salty is the ultimate flavour combo. Too often are we made to choose between the two, which is why this salted caramel number takes the cake (pun completely intended) as a decadent treat to bake this Mother’s Day. Salted caramel spread is your friend here.
