In case you missed it, New Jersey vegan cupcake shop Sweet Avenue is taking the world by storm with their Charlie Sheen cupcakes! It’s basically front page news. According to their twitter, they just sold a box to Geraldo. GERALDO.
Hmm, do you think it’s safe to say Charlie Sheen got more attention than the earthquake in Japan will get? Oh, Hollywood, your siren song enraptures us. But wait! All is not lost! Sweet Avenue is donating money to the Red Cross for every red velvet cupcake they sell. Yay! And I can tell you from experience, their red velvet cupcakes are the jam.
In other news: Geraldo is still alive.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Vegansaurus! Even if nobody else does, we love you. Very much. In the following ways: sexually, mentally, physically, emotionally. Imagine us doing sex on you all night long and then making you everything in Vegan Brunch for breakfast and donating $1 million to your favorite charities and gifting you a puppy who’s also a unicorn. That is how much we love you.*
Not surprisingly, we are celebrating today with food. Because food is love. Especially cake, that’s extra love. That’s how you know fat people are the most loved people on Earth. Also, the most awesome and the best-looking. So eat up, LOVERS!
Oh, and hit up the Valentine’s Day vegan bakesale at U.C. Berkeley because DUH.
*Or a kitten who’s also a dinosaur. YOUR CHOICE.
Ms. EveeDream, vegan queen of A Fresh New Stomach, made cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World for her coworkers. Naturally, they adored the little baked beasties and are begging her for more.
I swear, someday cupcakes really will take over the world. Not cupcake-bakers, but actually sentient cupcakes. It’s inevitable.

Look at reader Dina’s rum-soaked vegan fruitcake cupcakes! Dina says, “I was determined to make a fruitcake unworthy of traditional fruitcake jokes. I came up with this. It has the traditional faux fruit but also includes lemon zest, candied orange peel and candied ginger which brightens the flavors of the cake.” These are beautiful! Reportedly they got a rum frosting, too, but these little gems are plently festive without it.

Sticky Fingers’ chocolate-on-vanilla xmas cupcake, with festive sprinkles and edible Christmas tree! We’d like to buy one of these little darlings for every member of Congress who voted yes on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell abolition and the shark-finning ban. Hate equal rights? Hate sharks? Fuck off, you get no cupcakes from us.
