Sport-inspired Vegan Treats

Sport-inspired Vegan Treats

Coming up for air from the chaos of a new school year, I baked some “12 Men on the Field” cupcakes: rich chocolate cake (I used Chloe‘s celebration cake), vanilla buttercream filling, chocolate ganache-topped with a vegan royal icing football laces. 3 types of icings for every cupcake. IMG_1694

I’m not the greatest with the royal icing but… in the green Le Creuset, it kind of looks like footballs.  IMG_1702

These were super-rich cupcakes, perfect treat after a long day of work.IMG_1712

I loved this picture because it captured the texture of all three icings. IMG_1716

And more on the sport tip, as the Mets bomb another season, it’s easy to get cheap tickets. We checked out the Ceaser’s Club, which has an indoor, air-conditioned lounge with a full car and cushioned seats, as well as “better” food options for omnis but meh for vegans, like a choose-your-own-adventure salad bar.  IMG_1581

I chose traditional grub: vegan hot dog with tons of the fixins, Nathan’s fries, and a domestic beer. This is a baseball game after all.IMG_1586
