I am currently blogging live from Starbucks, aka my favorite place to relax. Unfortunately, my purpose for being here tonight is not to stop to smell the
What do you order at Starbucks? I know lots of people like to order fancy drinks with this, but without that, only two pumps of this, etc., but I just keep it simple with my grande hot tea with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yum!
However, I couldn't just leave you hanging after I gave you a teaser about baking in my last post. I am all about savoring the natural sweetness in life, and for me, baking is just that. While I don't enjoy eating baked goods, the actual act of baking and giving them to happy recipients couldn't make me happier. So until I post the recipes (which should hopefully be up by Saturday), here is a little taste of what I've been up to:
First I made Vegan "Oreo" (but really Newman O's) Cupcakes
and Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes.
After, I used the leftover cookie dough (there is some actually inside the cupcakes!) to bake up some simple vegan chocolate chip cookies.
Today, I brought them into school for my English class to enjoy. There is nothing better than seeing people smile when they receive something you baked from your heart. It was a nice treat for my friends on what was otherwise a stressful Monday, and it truly made my heart sing to see them enjoying the fruits of my labor (of love).
Oh, and I might have also used some of the leftover frosting to make vegan chocolate chip cookie sandwiches.
Now that really is a sweet Monday! But who were the cupcakes for? Well, I guess you'll just have to wait until my next post to find out. I'll give you one hint, though: the recipients are very sweet themselves!
What was one "sweet" thing that you did today? And what is your favorite kind of cupcake?
Have a lovely day!
