What is an angel cupcake? Apparently it is a cupcake that is "accidentally" found in the desk of a co-worker that suspiciously looks like a cupcake that Grumpy's Honeybunch makes.
The other day I received an email from a graduate student. The email read:
"I accidentally saw a cup cake in Tomek’s desk…which Almost looks like the ones you make…. I’m just wondering what happened to my share….
I responded with "I don't know what your talking about?" ;o)
I heard back from him with "Ohhh I just got to know that Tomek’s been given a cup cake by some angels……. So its fair…."
Further conversation implied that Tomek was a good boy so he was blessed with a cupcake from the angels whereas Ahintha must be a bad boy because he didn't get one. LOL These are the types of things I am going to miss in the office! That, and being told I can't leave until someone graduates....Well, I guess they all better be graduating by this December!
In any case, I am still wondering. How does one accidentally see something in another person's desk? ;o)
I made these cupcakes for a few reasons. First being they were vegan and since I have chosen to eat that way as much as possible, I wanted to see if I could make a cupcake that would rise up with a domed top while baking and also be tasty. I also wanted to share one with my vegan friend at the office. :o) I would say these are pretty darn good for a vegan cupcake and I would make them again for certain! I will admit that my Nanny's Mayonnaise Cupcakes still remains my favorite and if I had to choose one over the other it would be that one. I mean, I have been eating that particular recipe for at least over 40 years! :-D However, this is a great recipe to have on hand for my vegan diet!
I found the recipe for Chocolate Agave Cupcakes with Vegan Buttercream frosting on the Happy Little Vegans blog. A great blog! Check it out!
P.S. Thank you to my friend Jamie for pointing me in this blog direction!!.
