Two things YOU MUST DO TODAY! »
Also, there is a Mission Minis deal on Joffer. You gotta sign up soon and there has to be 20 people. Or something. I’m not exactly sure how it works, to be honest. The point is, a dozen mini cupcakes for 10 bucks (33 percent savings on regular price! I LOVE A DEAL!) and although they have but one vegan cupcake, it is a dream. In fact, our sources tell us it is far superior to the “regular” ones. SO TAKE THAT, EGGS AND OTHER NON-VEGAN BULLSHIT. Anyway, be one of the first to order and order ‘em vegan so they know vegans be serious about our vegan baked goods and then they make and sell more vegan stuff and you get the idea. Oh also, they DELIVER!!! Party time! Excellent!
Yesterday we ate the banana pecan (vegan) Mission Minis cupcakes. Here is our review: they are the motherfucking bomb. The jimmy jam. More, please.
They are like a mini banana muffin (not unlike Arizmendi Bakery’s vegan banana walnut muffins, but I won’t hold the cupcakes to that standard because those Arizmendi muffins are like they were just flown in on the backs of fat cherubim blowing trumpets and smearing delicious banana and brown sugar all over your body—REVIEW TO COME!) but with a pleasant spice kick that reminds you it’s almost time for fall food like pumpkin breads and butternut squash ravioli and allspice dram cocktails. I’m so excited.
Anyway, back to the Mission Minis. The icing is wonderful, too. It’s light, more on the sugary than the shortening-y side, and the perfect balanced amount. I, for one, hate when the ratio of cake to frosting is weighted too heavily toward the frosting, and here, the cake part really is allowed to shine. The little pecan finisher is just a crisp, professional touch, and I love that the frosting dollop retains its shape.
I want more of these. At $1 apiece, they are recession-friendly too (except if, like me, you are unable to stop at five.) As previously reported in this blog (what what!), their store opens on 22nd Street between Mission and Capp Streets sometime very soon (Oct. 1st, maybe!?). We’ll keep you posted BELIEVE YOU ME.
