GOING VEGAN: With My Desserts!

Hey loves,
I am going vegan!!!
Wait, What!
I know right, but not full vegan, just with my desserts.
Whew! Glad I cleared that up... lol

Well for some months now I've been working on eating healthier and have cut off junk food. Really it was the unhealthy and artificial sweets like, chocolate, candy, cupcakes,cookies, and etc. that I let go of. I did a no junk food challenge back in January and I stuck to it for about four months. I've missed eating sweets but not all of the extra calories, unhealthy fats, and artificial flavors. So I came up with this idea to GO VEGAN with my desserts!!!

That way I am not truly sacrificing eating sweets.

I've been doing research and found Sticky Fingers! This is a vegan bakery. Not only do they sell sweets but they also sell food. They are winners of my favorite cooking competition show Cupcake Wars on the Food Network. So exciting! It's crazy because I saw their episode, I think it was the all-star episode, and forgot that they have a bakery in my city.

Jack-pot!

So after work, I decided to give the place a visit and try two cupcakes. I chose the Vanilla Cupcake and the Cherry Blossom Cupcake.
Vanilla Cupcake (Bottom Left) and Cherry Blossom Cupcake (Top Right)
They were pretty good for vegan treats. My favorite out of the two was the Cherry Blossom Cupcake. The cupcakes were light in taste. It didn't taste heavy or like it had a lot of ingredients and extra added calories. To me the cupcakes were just right. So glad for that!
I think I am going to like this transition.
Until next time!
