They’re taking the world by storm…well, at least NYC by storm. There’s even a whole cookbook dedicated to them. Pretty soon, vegan cupcakes will be as ubiquitous as veggie burgers (LC hopes so anyway). BUT – I have to say that I am pretty excited to jump on this train to confectionary nirvana – most bakeries that offer vegan cupcakes here in the city also have other health-conscious variations, such as cupcakes free of processed sugars or grains….and my personal fave: the WHEAT-free versions (I’m allergic to wheat). Bakeries like Babycakes NYC (http://www.babycakesnyc.com/) offer sugar free, vegan, and wheat free cupcakes, cookies, and cakes. Take that, Hostess!!
