I love corn a lot, so these cupcakes are really funny to me. I’ve been waiting awhile to make these and it makes me really happy that today I got a chance to!! They were a lot of fun to make, too. These are lemon cupcakes (From Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World) with coconut frosting. The beans/corn kernels are flavoured coconut, pineapple, lemon and pina colada! The pepper on top is just black sprinkles! These were really easy to make, and they make me so happy. 🙂 My life rocks.

Since I haven’t posted in TWO MONTHS I figured I better update with
something pretty killer. So, I’ve come up with these chocolate
strawberry cupcakes. Instead of using vanilla soy milk I used
chocolate, and instead of using vanilla extract I used chocolate as
well. The cupcakes came out as a light chocolate flavour…very
On top is a chocolate mousse and on top of that…a strawberry
dipped half in chocolate and rolled in crushed almonds. Then
chocolate ganache gets drizzled over the top.
Pretty elaborate cakes…

Today is Canada Day. These are maple cupcakes, with maple frosting and a maple candy on top. I LOVE MAPLE. I don’t really even like maple syrup, actually but I looove everything flavoured maple… candy, candy, cupcakes, cookies, candy, and so on…So, I was happy to make maple flavoured cupcakes for everyone to enjoy. My room mate suggested lemon frosting. I think it would be good to put lemon on maple, so maybe they’ll come in the future. I also made cookies !!! On a holiday, one blog cannot be updated without the other. Happy Canada Day everyoneee !

Eeeh, I know these are muffins and not cupcakes, but I thought they deserve a place in the blog. Sometimes people call cupcakes muffins and muffins cupcakes but there is a difference between the two. Besides ingredient differences, cupcakes have papers and frosting, and muffins don’t. I’m not sure how many times I’ve had to smile and say, “Cupcake.” following, “Oh yeah, I checked out your muffin blog…” But, it’s not the end of the world.
Aside from that, it took me a long time to try and think up something to make. Lots of different cupcake ideas came into my head, but I ended up just following a recipe – Coffee Chip Muffins. These are the first recipe I’ve done from a cookbook I picked up called Vegan Brunch. This was a book I’ve been waiting for…my favourite meal of the day and by my favourite cookbook author! Needless to say, these turned out great. Also, I got to use my cupcake scoop for the first time. So, I ended up with preeeetty even cupcakes! So…coffee, chocolate, yummy…you know.
