It’s a homemade Golden Oreo and vanilla pastry cream stuffed into a golden cupcake. G’damn! That’s some work but the results look ridonc. For all you lazies in the house, here’s what I’d do: Just buy the Golden Oreos and some vegan pudding and then beg a friend to do the rest. And THAT’S how you get things done and still have time to watch TV all day. Livin’ the dream!
This recipe was inspired by the Bake it in a Cake website, which is just a place that posts pictures of food baked into other food. I’m a fan.
Ms. Cupcake opening in London »
On Friday, Apr. 1, Ms. Cupcake, an all-vegan cupcake shop is opening in Brixton, London! Yes, that’s a bit far away. Still very exciting! The whole internet is a’buzz about it. I’m just excited for this glimpse into Laura Beck’s future! Isn’t that totally her in 20 years? She’s probably bedazzling a cupcake hat as we speak. And a matching one for Hazel!
Elizabeth Taylor cupcakes by Sweet Elites vegan cupcakes in FRESNO (!?). How pretty are these? I’m going with SO PRETTY. A fitting tribute for the violet-eyed beauty.
Did anyone else make Elizabeth Taylor-themed baked goods? No? SLACKERS! Yes? Let me see!
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.
[you might also send me your luscious vegan food photos, were you so inclined!]
Olivia of Do You Want Whole Food, or Do You Want the Truth? made these super-scrumptious-looking cookies & cream cupcakes for her sister’s 18th birthday. Awesome sister, great job, Olivia! She used recipes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and reports that they were indeed “marvelous.”
