Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World

A friend of ours got engaged and asked me to make some cupcakes for their engagement party. I happily said “Yes.” ¬†Since the party was at a Mexican restaurant we decided the cupcakes should follow the theme of the restaurants cuisine. I made the Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes and the Simple Vanilla and Agave Nectar Cupcakes. They were all decorated, by our engaged friend, Anna and my sister Nicole with a vegan Vanilla Buttercream. ¬†They were a hit and no one knew that they were vegan except a few of us who were privy to that sorta information. I even got double thumbs up from the bride to be’s Maa!!!

The great thing about making these 2 cupcakes are that know have a go to recipe when I need a vanilla cupcake. I loved the agave in it so much. It made it a bit different from a regular vanilla cupcake but I think also better. Also the Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcake has made the top 5 of my favorite cupcakes of all time. I even made mini ones the same day I made the engagement party ones for a vegan event I was going too. So basically…if you haven’t made these 2 cupcakes yet I suggest you do ASAP!

Speaking of vegan events. Over the past 2 days myself, 2 other Jennifer’s and a Rachel have decided to take part in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale! We will have a table set up in Montclair NJ on May 1st right outside of Go Lightly. Once I have all the information available I’ll post all the info here. If there is anyone in the area who wants to be involved and bake something for the event please email me at
