31 Jan / Petunia’s Gluten-Free, Vegan Cupcakes Make for the Best Valentine’s Day Gift (and Indulgence!)
It’s been roughly 9 years since I’ve had a cupcake. 9 years ago I realized that all my tummy illness was from wheat. Fast-forward to today and it’s rare that I’m tempted by a cupcake, and even rarer to find a cupcake that meets my eating needs.
Then I stumbled upon Petunia’s Pies & Pastries at the PSU Saturday Market. I simply could not say ‘no’ to their Valentine’s Day special cupcakes. I mean, February is the month of love. Wasn’t it time to reconnect with my long-lost love of cupcakes?
So here’s the deal. I promised myself I would only have a tiny bite of each cupcake, so I could report back to you. Then, I would save them to fully relish at another time. That, my dear friends, is called denial.
Be sure to get the raspberry passion cupcake – it was my FAVORITE. It was light and tasty with a raspberry center. The coconut flakes and buttercream (minus the butter!) frosting made this a stand-out cupcake. And the cupcakes are made with coconut oil, so they’re even healthier (no soy!).
Oh, and while you’re at it, be sure to order some of the cowgirl cookies. The first gluten-free, vegan bakery cookie that I actually LOVED.
