first foray into cupcakes occurred last night! at 30yrs old, i finally baked some!

Lemon Gem Cupcakes (vegan with a vengeance)
my frosting was a bit... runny. i followed the recipe but... am wondering if i should've whipped the butter MUUUUCH more than i did. it was rather fluffy when i added the milk, etc.

ideas? suggestions? hmm...

It is more of an icing than a frosting, it's supposed to be smooth and runny going on, and then set up a bit, but still, not too much. And it's definitely not supposed to be fluffy! So perhaps try a buttercream in Vegan Cupcakes if you're looking for fluffy.
