Apple Cupcakes!January 15th, 2012 4 comments
No-one could ever accuse me of being naturally Martha Stewart-like. I’m forever accidentally ripping or breaking things around the house during my many enthusiastic ‘projects’. I have burnt silk shirts with the iron, caught oven mitts on fire, and sewn buttons on back-the-front.
I have vastly improved in this area lately but it’s precisely because I was born without this gene that I so respect and admire practical, domestic goddesses who instinctively know how to bake, sew and mend. This Apple Cupcake idea originally sprang forth from Martha and I fell in love with photos of it on blogs such as Oh She Glows and Blondie Bikes & Bakes, and couldn’t wait to try it out. I mean, HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! Apple Cupcakes without cooking, with minimal fuss (and mess!), that taste delicious! YES PLEASE!
There are heaps of topping ideas out there but I stuck with Peanut Butter, with Goji Berries on one half and Raw Cacao Nibs on the other. Gorgeous, healthy, fun and sooooo yummy!! And that’s my inner adult talking. Promise.

I dare you to read Bex’ blog without smiling… Miss Sparkles is a breath of fresh air who just inspires with her contagiously happy personality and her insanely delicious recipes.
Mouth watering photos, inspired recipes and a really genuinely lovely personality. Oh and I love the Star Wars/Sci Fi references dotted throughout, so fun!BeckyVeg Hot Pot
Bex is an incredible beauty, who is probably the cutest person I’ve ever met. She radiates positivity so much that she glows, or dare I say, sparkles. I am even more obsessed with Bex and her blog now.KristyKeepin It Kind
This girl is a like a breath of fresh air. I love her bubbly personality and her love of delicious, healthy vegan food. Did I mention she is an awesome Aussie!LisaThe Raw Serenity
Rebecca posts awesome recipes and witty repartee, she is a brilliant photographer as well.
I love this blog for the density of information Rebecca delivers in a witty, fun way. Her blog’s title intrigued me and the content didn’t disappoint. It’s also chock full of great links that have been extremely helpful.
I love this blog not only for her awesome recipes, but also as a testament to how cool it is to commune with someone a half a world away (she’s in Australia, I’m in Colorado, USA).
I love Rebecca’s site. She looks so beautiful and her posts are so down-to-earth and fun. Vegan Sparkles is just an all-round cool site!MadisonVeggieful
Ms. Sparkles is an adorable Australian… We made the Cashew Cream of Mushroom soup and the Moroccan Sweet Potato Chickpea soup. Both were incredible! Vegan or no, you must try them!CatherineThe Catherine Blog
A cheerful vegan blog with great recipes and photos I would like to eat!
Vegan Sparkles makes me want to go Perth! She has probably won The Sunshine Award a dozen times but she’s just too adorable to leave out of this list.LindsayLindsay is Vegan
