Vegan Baby Shower!
Day 2 on VeganMoFo! Today I thought I'd talk about our baby shower. A few of my friends got together and threw it for us back in August. Nearly everyone else are omnis, but they all contributed vegan food! I have the best friends <3 Every single thing was vegan, it was amazing! Everyone ate & loved everything too. This is a huge deal to us because where we live, the only good vegan food we get comes from our kitchen. Having it made for us was a real treat.
First off,the yummy cake our friend Pamela made for us. You can find the recipe on her blog, Pamela Cooks. It was a lemon cake with raspberry jam between layers and buttercream frosting and decorated with gorgeous fondant flowers! Probably the best combo I've ever had. Pamela is the best! She was the only vegan at the shower besides the 3 of us.
Another friend made vegan cupcakes for us! She had never baked without eggs before! She always raves about our cupcakes at other events and wanted to try it out herself. YUM! These were cookies-n-cream variation from Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World.
We didn't get many pictures of the food, probably because we were so busy eating it all, but there was tons!
And since the Vegan Kid is glaringly missing from this entry, here's a random picture of him running around all sugared up, after swimming in the pool. (the baby shower was a pool party)
