Vegan Cupcake Recipe might not be vegan?

Hey everyone, I read the recipe for the vegan cupcakes and I'm really eager to make some,  they sound great.

But I saw that there is a 'oreo icing' and this concerned me because I recently read an article that said some of Kraft's sugar suppliers use cane sugar which is refined with 'bone char' made from.. well, charred animal bones.


'Kraft has several sugar suppliers. Sugar in our products can come from either sugar cane or sugar beets, depending on availability.

Some of our suppliers DO use the animal-derived natural charcoal (also known as "bone char") in their cane sugar refining process and some suppliers DO NOT use this process.'


some vegans think that it's ok because it's not directly being consumed, but just incase you're not one of these people, I thought I'd get it out there.

still planning on making some though, just minus the oreos ecstatic
