As you may or may not know, Sunday October 18th was National Chocolate Cupcake Day! I myself celebrated with these amazing chocolate coconut cupcakes with rum frosting, a slight modification of the basic chocolate cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.

This is a mightyfine book, and if you are a fan of vegan cupcakes, as surely you are, then you should get yourself a copy right this minute.

But we need not restrain ourselves in our cupcake love, only enjoying them on days of national celebration. Nay! The Vegan Etsy Team lets us enjoy cupcakes all the time, edible and otherwise. Observe:

If you're lucky enough to live in Ohio, you should waste no time and order these amazing Elvis cupcakes from KT's Kitchen this instant! (If you, like me, are not lucky enough, don't worry - this shop has plenty of other goodies to offer.)

Don't feel like full-sizers? How about some fantabulous minis from Sweet Fritsy? Having sampled the sweets from this shop, I can attest that they are sweet indeed - as in, suh-weet!

Love the little cuppy cakes, but don't have too much of a sweet tooth? Watching the waistline, mayhaps? Well what about these unbelievably cute cupcake earrings from Pinkkis? People may try to nibble your ears! But then maybe you like that sort of thing.

Me, I don't wear regular pierced earrings. But no matter! There's always another cute offering just 'round the corner - such as Sick On Sin's set of five - count them FIVE - wacky and hilarious cupcake friend magnets. I dare you to name me one refrigerator that would not benefit from these adornments.

That's right, I got more. Got a cupcake lover in your life? Check out this print from My Zoetrope - because I just found you their next b-day present, totes. (Ahem. My birthday is in January. Just sayin'.)

Take it up a notch and throw in this gorgeous cupcake stand from Vegan Dish as well, and I promise you're going to be someone's new best friend. And who couldn't use another best friend?

Believe it or not, I'm not nearly out of delightful cupcake offerings! But I have to leave you to do some of the exploring for yourself, don't I? Have fun, and happy cupcaking.

Until next Monday,

Melissa Bastian

It's just a universal fact - everyone loves cupcakes. I've found that baking cupcakes is the very best way to show people that vegan food isn't "weird" and that we eat things other than brown rice and seaweed. Plus, they're crazy cute! :D
