First, a quick little plug for Melisser of the Urban Housewife (who was also featured in the most recent Vegetarian Times): please help to continue to show your support and excitement for the upcoming opening of Sugar Beat Sweets, SF’s first all vegan bakery storefront.
(If you missed their fundraiser shirts, I am so sorry ’cause they RULE. If you see my SoCal doppleganger rockin’ one, say hi! It’s probably my non-vegan but still cool sister.)
Ah yes… I’m alive still, see?
That aside, her awesome mama made sure I knew Kayen’s latest obsession included dinosaurs. As these were made for a wee vegan, the choice was obvious: use herbivorous dinosaurs!
I’m sorry that I didn’t get better photos of them, but I’ll admit there had been a little fun-having on my part so I was quite tired by the time I got them all decorated and delivered that Saturday morning. Luckily, a nice woman at the party snapped some photos, so I thank her for letting me “borrow” them for this post. (Thanks Tallie, much appreciated!) The cuppies were chocolate-vanilla swirl with a big dollop of vanilla “buttercream” on top. Nothing says 10am like a bunch of sugared-up waist-high humanoids, right?
blue triceratops, green parasauralophus, and (oops, man down!) yellow brachiosaurus (these were all made of gum paste – the parasauralophus had three pieces at most each for the head and two arms, the brachiosaurus all had a long neck in the front and a long tail to match in the back.)
There are more birthday cupcakes coming on the horizon! Till next time…
