Fancy Vegan Cupcakes

I made these last week for a vegan workmate - a bit of an experiment (again). I made the fondant flowers first and left them to dry out overnight. I made the cake with applesauce (instead of eggs - go figure!) and the icing was the Aquafaba icing that I've posted about before. I have to say that they tasted lovely, but they didn't hold up as well as traditional butter icing - I need to work on that technique a bit more
