I made this as cupcakes, as I'm travelling over the holidays and have had far better experiences traveling with muffins or cupcakes than I have had with cake, however, you're supposed to make this in a bundt pan.
Mix confectioner's sugar together with warm water diluted orange juice.

I've been posting vegetarian recipes on my Live Journal blog for the past couple of years, so I figured I'd consolidate them on this blog. I have recently started writing a series of restaurant reviews and posting them here as well. I would also like to post articles on topics affecting vegetarians in Massachusetts, but I probably won't get around to doing that for quite a while.
So, hello. I hope you enjoy my website. If I can convince one person that vegetarians are not all humorless, politically correct, and annoying my job will be done.
