I think this is a preview of my donut creation come to life!
I'm a winner! A while back ago I announced that I was a finalist in Dunkin' Cruelty's Vegan Donut contest. Well today, the winner was FINALLY announced, and I won!!! My vegan chai-spiced creation will be made and sold at the absolutely fabulous Vegan Treats bakery in Bethlehem, PA. I couldn't be more excited to be the winner, and I want to thank all of you who voted for me! I am immediately planning a road trip to see the bakery myself and sampling my donut and more from Vegan Treats.
My original submission:
"My vegan Chai-Spiced donut (vanilla chai creme filling, white icing, and chocolate sprinkles) was inspired by my favorite beverage, a vanilla soy chai latte. No reason why vegans can't also indulge in a delicious sweet treat - even sweeter knowing that it's cruelty free!"
And in other winning vegan news, a vegan chef took the top prize on Food Networks' "Cupcake Wars." Congratulations to Chef Chloe Coscarelli! In addition to the winning Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes (recipe here), Chloe also served up Ginger Nutmeg Spice Cupcakes with Date Caramel Drizzle, Crème-filled Chocolate Orange Cupcakes with Candied Orange Peel, and Raspberry Tiramisu Cupcakes. Just reading that list of cupcakes made me die of happiness. All I can say is OH MY GOD YUMMMMMMMM!!!!
