Happy Naw-Ruz! Vegan Chai Latte Cupcakes

Happy Naw-Ruz, first day of Spring and the end of my 19-day fast :)

To celebrate I made vegan Chai Latte Cupcakes. Another recipe from the best cupcake book ever, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. The texture is more moist than the chocolate cupcakes, almost spongy but in a good way. The spiciness of the cinnamon, cloves and ginger took me awhile to get used to. Plus, I tend to like super sweet things. However my fiancee LOVED them. He also likes the fact that no icing is called for, just sift powdered sugar mixed with cocoa powder. These cupcakes go well with a warm cup of tea or coffee. As a couple we give them * * * * * (out of 5).
