This post is super old so I though I would update it a bit. Who wants and all natural non-toxic cleaner without spending a fortune on it? We do, we do!

I got the cupcake recipe from allrecipes.com and the frosting was also from allrecipes.com that I transformed into vegan, but they were both soooo good. I brought these to our DC which is a once a month gathering for small groups at our church and people just ate them up! You don't have to be vegan to ...
