Vegan Mofo #26: This is Halloween

Vegan Mofo #26: This is Halloween

Like many strange and unusuals, Halloween is my favorite time of year. As I made 2 batches of these Halloween cupcakes, I, in accordance with ancient folklore and pagan ritual, listened to the Halloween soundtrack at full volume and prank called my boyfriend. The cupcakes would be for my students, who’ve been discussing Halloween since October’s calendar page was revealed, and for pre-Greenwich Village parade activities at my apartment. These activities included my first ever…

Cupcake Challenge!
3 participants (2 male omnivores, 1 female omnivore) were blind-folded and given a small wedge of the best-selling Entenmann’s Halloween cupcake. (The cupcake’s huge top of icing was minimized for the challenge.) After cleansing their palates they were then given a wedge of my VCTOTW golden vanilla with chocolate ganache cupcake.

They were then asked which cupcake was better. All three agreed that the vegan cupcake blew the Entenmann’s out of the water. It was then revealed to the participants that they had selected the vegan cupcake. Woohoo!

Here are some highlights from the parade:
A motley crew
 Alien
L.L. Big, hairy monstrous things (Ladies love…)
Medusa, Medusa…
I’ll let you guess what this is.
The most original costume I saw.
Huh?
Oh what a frightful evening!
