Vegan Cupcakes for Breakfast? Why Not!

Movie-Inspired Cupcakes

When I was in New York City, I had to make a cupcake stop at the Little Cupcake Bakeshop in Manhattan. 

After watching one of my favorite movies, To All The Boys: Always and Forever, I was inspired to visit this bakery. The main characters, Lara Jean and Peter, dined at this bakeshop during their senior trip to NYC. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a romance story based on the trilogy book series by Jenny Han.

Best Vegan Cupcakes

There were so many cupcakes and other baked goods I wanted to try at the Little Cupcake Bakeshop, but I didn’t have enough time to eat them all. I visited the shop the day before my trip came to an end. The cupcakes would not have made the 10+ hour flight journey home. I have my list of what to try the next time I’m in town.

I tried the vegan strawberry and red velvet cupcakes. OM! SO.GOOD! The mouthfeel was similar to muffins; hence, I ate them for breakfast instead. Those were the best vegan cupcakes I’ve ever had. The cake was moist and not too sweet. The frosting was perfection.

Thoughts on Vegan Dishes

While I love vegan dishes and am eager to try making different recipes at home, the outcome of the dishes doesn’t always turn out well. Vegan cooking, especially baking, has its challenges. It could be the vegan substitutions or the humid environment in Hawai’i. I learned in culinary school that the environment in which one lives could affect the outcome of your finished dish.

I haven’t tackled vegan baking cupcakes yet, but I tried baking vegan peanut butter cookies last holiday. The recipe looked very simple, and it had few ingredients. However, those cookies tasted horrible. Plus, they were a bit burnt, which made them taste worse. It was a frustrating experience but a humorous memory now. #veganbakingfails

I will continue practicing and whipping up more vegan dishes soon. Look out for a future post on a vegan baked dish one day soon.

Happy Halloween! Be safe!
