Didn't have celery, so skipped that, otherwise followed mostly--just used smashed chickpeas, a teaspoon of white vinegar, dijon mustard, some fennel seed and a tiny bit of celery salt, was spicy, flavorful and delicious! Thanks so much!

Almost forgot, only used a tablespoon of mayo, didn't seem to need anymore with the mustard!

I used butter in the frosting and it worked out fine. Gawsh the frosting was to die for! We thought the cupcakes were a bit too gingery and not chocolatey enough, but seriously, we could eat this frosting straight, light fluffy, incredible!

We actually made some yogurt in my college microbiology class this year...we pasteurized our own milk and then used plain store-bought yogurt as our starter culture, it actually turned out pretty well. I don't know about a machine, but we used a water bath to keep it at temp. I could probably post waaaaay more details, but I know using unpasteurized milk was key for us, which you can't really buy in the US.
