Last week, Gavin reached out to one of his friends from school, Shannon McCook, who has a specialty in baking cupcakes. She has an Etsy storefront called The Cupcake Mint.
Here is some of her work:
Shannon specifically stated in her email that you can’t tell the difference between these (vegan) cupcakes and regular cupcakes. I guess it can’t hurt to have a taste test – just to make sure.
Since she doesn’t do actual wedding cakes, we would have to either get a smaller cake or figure out some way to make a modification to the “cake cutting” portion of our reception. (Maybe we just break one big cupcake in half together?)
