Cupcake mischief

Do you have those friends who always manage to entice you to get into things--things you wouldn't have done on your own? Such as super-fancy, decadent cupcakes? Well, I have friends like that. In particular, I have two friends whose presence seems to be the key to the spontaneous generation of cupcakes. Let me show you what I mean...


S'mores Cupcakes, from VCTOTW, of course. Towers of vegan buttercream frosting drizzled with ganache and topped with graham crackers? Mmm...


Putting on the finishing touches...


Some of them we chose to top with strawberries instead, just to mix it up a bit.

And on yet another occasion:

Tiramisu Cupcakes! For someone who loves coffee and cupcakes (and that would be all three of us), who can imagine a more pleasing creation?


Abby takes her work very seriously--See how meticulously she dusts the cupcake liners?


And, well, what would we have done without Jessica's masterful bean arrangements?

Everybody needs friends like this, don't you think?



So for future reference... whenever you see cupcakes on this blog that have truly gone above and beyond, you now know who is probably behind the madness.

Cheers!

You could start a biz in an area with good number of vegans/vegetarians. I can so see a little vegan cupcake only bakery in NYC or Chicago. At least you've got great friends to bake with in Atlanta!

I'll take the tiramisu. I'd pay $5 for one.

Hey, can you do a post on Vegan Secret Weapons? In other words, ingredients that you couldn't live without and that have made your everyday cooking possible and the food great? Just a thought. :-)

I have been drooling over the tiramisu cupcakes ever since I got that book but I have yet to make them because they look very time consuming. Were they worth it??

While I was reading I kept thinking of an old commercial that said something like "as much fun to bake as it is to eat!" It's good to see you having fun and of course the cupcakes are lovely.
