Vegan MoFo Day 1: Intro to my Month, Cupcakes

Yes it is upon us again...Vegan Month of Food 2012 Edition.  Vegan MOFO is awesome.  It is a chance to blog about all things deliciously vegan.  The MoFo-ers ask that we do a minimum of 20 posts but I am going to try and do one everyday, maybe more.  I know. I KNOW!!!  This Mama just had a baby 2 weeks ago, the Papa started a new career and the Eldest Babes are amazingly exuberant and requiring a lot of stimulation.  Not to mention I will be incorporating a little homeschooling into the mix.  Well, Vegan Mofo is awesome.  The month of October propels me:  changing leaves, changing lives, changing body, changing babes.

This year I decided to go simple with a theme.  I will be making 31 varieties of cupcakes over the month.  My goal is to bake a cupcake each day but realizing that some days may be a bit of a write off with the amount of responsibility in the mess, I may not get to it.  So some days I may not bake at all but others I may bake 4 varieties.  We'll see.  31 Cupcakes are promised however.

Here is a tentative list of the cupcakes I would love to complete (they are all courtesy of the amazing Isa Chandra - the vegan Goddess that I wish to meet desperately...last year I won a signed copy of her book Vegan Pie in the Sky):

  1. Happy MoFo, and congrats on your new baby! 31 types of cupcakes is a great idea.

    Do you live near any middle eastern or Indian grocery stores? They are good places for rosewater. I've seen it at like Whole Foods too but it's probably way more expensive at that sort of place.

  2. Happy MoFo to you as well. We live in a small town in Ontario where lentils are considered an ethnic food. I could get into the city with my hubby but I guess I should call ahead before a venture into the city with three babes.

  3. You can buy rosewater at the pharmacy. Or order online. PS I hace made all these cupcakes and my favs are pumpkin chocolate chip and mexican hot chocolate! Have fun!

  4. Thanks. I made pumpkin chocolate chip for my wedding. I'm not the best cupcake maker so this will definitely be a challenge.

  5. Happy MoFo! Looking forward to seeing what you create :) We're a homeschooling geek family, although I'm the only vegan. FOR NOW ;)

  6. Love homeschoolers, geeks, mamas and vegans! Thanks for leaving a note.
