Lea Michele’s Vegan Cupcake in a Jar

By on Monday, August 30th, 2010


There are few things in life that I love more than Glee, Fox’s hit musical comedy.  While Glee did win a few Emmys last night, I was disappointed that Lea Michele, who stunningly plays the character of Rachel, did not win.  She was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and I think she should have won, but she is young, and I can root for her for years to come.  Yesterday was her 24th birthday.  I remember where I spent my 24th birthday, and it certainly wasn’t at the Emmys.  But all is well that ends well because guess what she got for her birthday?

Pre-show host Billy Bush presented her with a vegan cupcake in a jar.  And though I would be pretty darn excited about such a gift, this red carpet gal pronounced the gift both “ghetto” and “cool.”

Texas Cupcake Event!

By on Friday, June 4th, 2010

Now this is a cupcaking event! They do things big in Texas, especially at Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop in Austin.

Jess Pryles, of Sugadeaux Cupcakes in Melbourne, Australia, will be visiting the Lone Star State this month! Sugadeaux’s motto is, if you’re going to indulge, you should do it properly.

Debating whether to make the trip across town, or across Texas?  Check out Sugar Mama’s ratings on Yelp!  There are a lot of Sugar Mama fanatics out there!  One happy customer wrote, “Sugar Mama’s is a cupcake lover’s dream come true.”  Oh, how sweet.

Vegan in LA

By on Sunday, January 24th, 2010

Sometimes dietary restrictions can make it hard to enjoy the finer things in life…like cupcakes. But in LA, things became just a little bit easier for the dietarily-restricted cupcake lover with the opening of Babycakes earlier this month. This New York transplant serves up the sweets with the health and allergy-conscious in mind – all of their offerings are egg, soy and dairy-free, and many are refined sugar and gluten-free as well. While their ingredients are restricted, their menu has plenty of options. Babycakes features red velvet, vanilla, carrot and chocolate cupcakes along with a plethora of cookies, crumb cakes, muffins and other delicious baked goods.

Just this last Friday, Beverly Hills’ haute-cupcake bakery Sprinkles jumped into the game with the introduction of their vegan and gluten-free red velvet cupcake.  Is this the start of a health-conscious cupcake war in LA?  If so, I can tell you right now: the cupcake lovers will be the winners.
