Today I had a cupcake.
Not just any cupcake.
A PHENOMENAL FANTASTICAL GLORIOUSLY DELIGHTFUL CUPCAKE OF AWESOME!
No I'm not exaggerating. Jeez.
It was the best cupcake I have ever had. My friend Jan Marie made them for the school bake sale and I was lucky enough to get one of them...and then crave 300 of them, only to be met with an empty plate after rushing back to the bake sale table for more and begrudgingly accepting an inferior dessert option in replacement.
The most shocking detail about said glorious cupcake? IT WAS 100% VEGAN! It was an amazing chocolate cupcake filled with a light and fluffily creamy mousse made with TOFU of all things (ack), topped with a similarly constructed piped-on frosting/chocolate ganoche.
Wonder of wonders, the best dessert I've had in over a decade was vegan. Aimee would be so proud.
And now another groundbreaking truth (since I promised): I am the stealth ninja of Baltimore city detours.
