Spread cupcake with a few thin layers of spreadable fruit at room temperature. Neatly and evenly spread the layers for the most attractive appearance. Spoon a small circle of Skinny Confectioners' Icing on top of the jam, decorate with fresh fruit and carefully drizzle tops of berries with more icing.

    I like how they are a bit dense. Kind of a cross between a cupcake and a muffin. A cupmuffcake! - 9/1/12

  • I can't have soy any suggestions for a vegan replacement of the yogurt? - 5/12/08

    Reply from (6/17/08)
    There is a rice based yogurt, it'd probably be the easiest although I think it's thinner than soy yogurt so you might want to back off the liquids. Barring that, I think the yogurt is an egg replacer so you can always try what you normally use for egg replacing but I have no idea how it end up.

  • sounds good, but had a couple of questions. Is the oil mentioned in the directions supposed to be there or not? Can I sub skim milk for the soy milk, and how do I make plain yogurt into vanilla yogurt? - 5/7/08

    Reply from (6/17/08)
    I fixed the oil, thanks for noticing. Vanilla yogurt is a flavor you can buy alongside plain yogurt. Otherwise you'd have to add vanilla to your plain. Skim milk is thinner than soy milk and may affect the texture but you probably can. I haven't tried that as I'm vegan.
