>Mint Chocolate Cupcakes
April 20, 2011 §
I have a friend who is so near to my heart that even though I don’t see her that often anymore, it’s like no time has even passed when I do. I met her during my first week in college, remaining friends through the dorm years and living together our junior and senior years… and knowing that I’m likely not even through a third of my life I can easily say that those were two of the hardest years. Through it all she stood by my side and carried me through it. When I think back to it, I’m so grateful that she was there for me and lucky to still have her in my life.
We recently connected again and as it so happens, her birthday was coming up and her boyfriend was planning his proposal. He gathered her closest friends to meet at the bar they had their second date to surprise her with some celebratory drinks. Naturally, I had to make some cupcakes for the special occasion. I thumbed through Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
, my current go-to source for cupcakes, and picked out mint chocolate. They were amazing! A few people even went back for seconds. I can’t wait for the next special occasion so I can use another recipe from this book.

Here’s a photo taken right after the proposal. He took her on stage at the Hollywood Bowl and serenaded her. Pretty amazing, isn’t it? I can’t wait for the wedding.
