After dinner at Purple Peanuts, I'd kinda been hoping to visit Cupcake Central for dessert. Alas, they were closed by the time we were ready to stop by. Even after arriving home I couldn't get cupcakes out of my head and so flicked through my copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Turns out I had the pantry supplies to make plenty of these recipes! I decided to try out something similar to the suggested mocha variation on their basic chocolate cake recipe - Michael's a coffee lover, and even had the cold dregs of his habit sitting in the coffee plunger for me to use.
