The recipes were inspired/taken/modified from Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero's amazing book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.
They are absolutely divine.
Featuring golden vanilla cupcakes; kahlua/espresso filling; vegan cream cheese frosting; and cocoa powder, cinnamon and coffee beans on top!
I heard many a soul sigh that this was the best thing they had ever put in their mouth, although that might have something to do with the large amounts of mocha kahlua I used to make it yummy. (I warned the girls not to eat & drive - Paige said she blew a 0.036 right after eating it!)
Chocolate Raspberry Tort Cupcake
Featuring basic chocolate cupcakes; Crofter's organic raspberry preserves as filling; chocolate mousse (which is HEAVEN by itself) and fresh raspberries from Willie Green's on top.
I made up the name on this one and I've never actually had chocolate raspberry tort, but if it's anything like this cupcake, sign me up. This was a compilation of ideas from the book thrown together because asked what his favorite kind of cake was, Chris didn't hesitate for a second to reply raspberry-filled chocolate.
(I would also like to note I was told this was the "best f***ing cupcake ever eaten".)
Chai Tea Latte Cupcake
Indian Summer into Fall are my favorite culinary seasons, and who doesn't love a delicious soy chai tea latte? This moist and spicy cake features black & chai teas, soy yogurt to add depth and plenty of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, black pepper, nutmeg & cocoa to warm you all winter long. Dusted with powdered sugar & stenciled spices.
These creations were made with lots of love and appreciation for my healers! I am feeling so much better thanks to them and could not express my gratitude better than these treats! Just imagine what they'll get when I'm 100% healed! :)
