We never intended to get into the “Cupcake Game”. I mean there are some really good cupcakes out there, believe me I have sampled my fair share! We thought, we do pies leave the cakes to everyone else. And then….. And then…… well we got a request we a gluten free vegan cupcake. So like any good people pleaser, we got in the kitchen. Kerri is the main baker around these parts and she already makes a mean cupcake, no really it is good! She comes from a family of bakers so of course I enlisted her help here. My nephew is a severe celiac and that poor kid suffers through dry baked goods so it was important for me especially to make something that he could eat, scratch that, that he WOULD eat! But with it being vegan I knew it was not going to be easy.
Here in Vermont, every July there is 1 thing that every farmer has in abundance; ZUCCHINI!!! Kerri and I put our heads together. Using healthful, in season ingredients we came up with a super moist, gluten free, healthy, vegan cupcake with not a ton of added sugar. We even came up with a “cream cheese” frosting!
Since then people can’t get enough of our cupcakes! Both our gluten free, vegan, and regular. I guess we are in the cupcake game!
