When I kicked off my five-day weekend (technically, Labour Day should only afford me a three-day weekend, but yay for vacation time!), let me tell you, I had plans, baby.  Big plans.  It was going to be a veritable orgy of creativity around my place.  But you know how it is: the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.  Oh, I did get a little cross-stitching in, and started a mock-up of a Lolita dress, but neither of these creative endeavours yielded anything I could complete and post here, proudly proclaiming, “I made this!”  That all changed today when, with my trusty copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World! in hand, I turned out these babies: Mucho Margarita Cupcakes.

Aren’t they festive?  I think the coloured sugar around the edges is my favourite part.  This is the second recipe I’ve tried from that book – having inhaled the pumpkin-chocolate chip cupcakes with cinnamon icing before I could get a picture – and I cannot say enough good things about it.  This is twice, now, that I’ve managed from-scratch cupcakes that a) rose properly, b) cooked through properly, and c) didn’t burn.  Highly recommended!
