The "angel" cupcake


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….

Wondering....
Ahintha"

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!!.

I like this is Vegan, I too am attempting to go more toward that direction. It looks delicious and I love a buttercream frosting, the very first kind I learned to make. I am looking forward to looking at more of your posts.
Smiles at you.

If a vegan diet includes cupcakes like these, then I'd better get with the program! Great story.

Just by looking at it, you wouldn't think this delicious cupcake is vegan. It looks delicious!

Jamie said...

Ha Ha! How does one find a cupcake in a co-worker's desk? They are totally going to miss your treats (I mean you Shelby). I'm glad you tried out this Vegan cupcake. I haven't ventured to the vegan cooking but I admire you for doing it.
