We had the party of the century for my Godson’s 1st birthday last Saturday. Bouncy houses, blow-up waterslide, face painting, 100 balloons, huge Brazillian BBQ and 30 vegan lion cupcakes (152 later in this blog)
Cupcakes were delicious! I had my niece help me make them. She thinks I am super weird and what I eat is even weirder and usually gross, but she loved these cupcakes. Unfortunately I can’t share the recipe, as it was from the Sticky Fingers cookbook (buy it on Amazon used for $8, you won’t regret it).
I made the Classic vanilla cake pg. 49 then topped with Vanilla frosting pg 50. I used Panda cherry licorice for themane (cut the licorice) Rice dream chocolate chips for the eyes and Nature’s Path “Whole O’s” for the ears. I did eat two of these Sat night (not healthy, but so, so good)
