You can never go wrong with chocolate cupcakes. So when one of my classmates bid on my vegan treats in the schools silent auction fund raiser, that is exactly what I offered to bake her. The problem is that with doing the show, I do not really get a chance to bake for leisure so even though I already have a vegan chocolate cake video, I’ll have to have vegan chocolate cupcakes too.
