One of the reasons I was so thrilled to be heading East actually had nothing to do with food. Hard to believe, I know, but it's true. You see, my brother has recently become engaged to the most fantabulous lady, and I got it in my little head to throw them a surprise party to celebrate! We got them pretty good, as you can see at left, but what was even more surprising was how damn good the vegan cake from Whole Foods turned out. It was just beautiful, for one thing, but it was oh-so moist and rich and decadent. It was easily one of the best vegan cakes I've ever had. I mean, check out that fudge center!
Not that you needed more proof, but here's Claire really enjoying her slice. :)
The lesson to be learned here is that if it's good, it doesn't matter if it's vegan or not - people will devour it. I, for one, think animal advocacy through feeding people is one of the most fun ways to educate, and I do it every chance I get. I'd like to suggest all vegans do the same.
