Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World

Magnolia Bakery – Sprinkles or Mouse Droppings?

Filed under: Cupcakes in the News,Cupcakes NYC,Other People's Cupcakes — by isachandra @ 10:13 am

I know I shouldn’t write something so gross on a cupcake blog, but Magnolia Bakery bothers me. First of all, they use eggs and butter. It’s as if they don’t even realize that the vegan revolution is upon us. Second of all, I had a cupcake of theirs in my pregan days and it was dry. Not quite biscuit dry, but definitely dry. Third, it just annoys me in the way that designer jeans annoy me. Wait, do designer jeans still exist or is that strictly 80s? Whatever.

But they’ve been shut down by the health department, and although the owner is trying to focus the attention on the missing sink, read a little further and see that some mice are missing their droppings.

Sometimes I think people stand in line for them just to be standing in a line. This isn’t communist Russia. There are cupcakes everywhere, go celebrate your freedom. Preferably at Babycakes or ‘snice.

Washington Post Interview

Filed under: Cupcakes in the News — by isachandra @ 4:52 pm

When I first invented veganism back in 1989 I had no idea it would take off such as it did. Luckily, the news media is starting to catch on and have published their first ever article about veganism where they happen to interview me. Also, there’s a cupcake recipe. What will I come up with next?


Picture I took of myself for MySpace but if it’s good enough for MySpace it’s good enough for the Washington Post.
