The next day, I dropped him off at school with 2 dozen mini vanilla cupcakes, a bunch of juice boxes, and a stack of napkins. He was so excited and his classmates were super stoked when they found out they got to eat cuppies for their mid-morning snack. They even made a cute Happy Birthday sign for The Boy. It was all way too much fun. Since he's in preschool, this was the first time I was able to play the role of the cool mom who bakes good shit to eat and I gotta say, I liked it!
dangerous. Their size makes them even harder to resist. What is it about things in miniature that makes them so alluring?
Anyhow, I used the recipe for basic vanilla cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and just reduced the baking time to about 13 minutes to accommodate the mini size. I frosted them with the killer vanilla buttercream recipe from the same book. These recipes never fail.
Winner, winner, chickpea dinner!
