Vegan MoFo Day 20: Birthday Cupcakes

Hello everyone.  I promised cupcake pics and here they are.  These are for my Auntie's 60th birthday party tonight, which is a barn dance and the food is a hog roast!! Blech, however my Auntie is making vegan food for me (she's awesome) and in return I offered cuppers.

I made the basic chocolate cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World which I flavoured with mint, then I added peppermint icing and some chopped mint cremes to decorate.  These are pretty much the same as I made for Daddy Alien's 60th Birthday 2 years ago.


I also made the Cookies & Cream variation of cupcakes except in the Basic Vanilla recipe instead of the Basic Chocolate.  I had to buy special american mini oreos, as UK oreos are not vegan! BOO.  But I think they came out pretty cute!

I found these in the American Aisle (which is basically 2 shelves) in my local big ass Tesco. Cute but they're £2.50 each and I had to buy 2 and I used them all!


This is my bro's 'creative' way to use up leftover minty icing, by putting it on the crispy cakes my mum made yesterday....

This then evolved to a double decker, mint creme topped, crispy sandwich of win!

And here's bellend creator himself enjoying the fruits of his labour!
I will leave you with a Jazzy pic. She actually laid there, still and looking at me and let me take 2 or 3 photos.  This is her all snug and comfy on her favourite spot - on her blanky!
Have a great Saturday all!


  1. What a bellend! That creation does look pretty epic though! I love the idea of topping mint chocolate cupcakes with a mint cream - I might steal that idea!

  2. Those cupcakes look amazing.

    We've had an explosion of American markets here - I think we now have 4 (not including Lupe Pinto's) and 3 are in the city centre. Not one of them has vegan Oreos of any variety. Oh wait, I lie, one of them has the fudge-covered ones for £1.99 for a pack of 4.

  3. Amazing. I wish mine were always so pretty.

  4. Lovely cupcakes and hooray for your aunt making you something vegan, too!

    I love that you call those things crispy cakes, we call them chocolate crackles!

  5. Aww, Jazzy! That is so cool that your aunt made you vegan food! I bet your pretty cupcakes kicked the rest of the desserts' butt. That is quite a monster crispy sandwich! How on earth did your brother manage to open his mouth wide enough to eat it?!


speak to me, yo!
