Graduation Rosé Cupcakes (vegan)

If you're anything like me then you love Rosé wine. Personally it is my favorite wine so when Amanda from The Glorious Grape asked me to join her Say Yes to Rosé collaboration, I was down! (pro tip: click the link for some great info on Rosé)
With grad ceremonies coming up I think this would be the perfect treat to serve for your friends or family graduating from high school or post-secondary. 
They would also be lovely for a bridal shower, special get together, or spring party!
These light and sweet cupcakes are accompanied by a delicious and perfectly creamy frosting. 
You can use a couple drops of food coloring in the frosting and/or batter to add a fun color.
These cupcakes have a subtle wine flavor which makes the perfect treat for a special occasion. 
If you wish to have more Rosé flavor then you can add in more Rosé instead of orange juice.
