Celebrate New York With My Friend Christina's Rainbow Cupcakes

I am very excited by the news that New York has just legalized same-sex marriage, becoming the largest state to do so. And while perhaps this political news is out of place on a baking blog, I am going there!

My friend Christina and I go wayyyyy back, back to high school in the Bay Area. Christina is a GREAT baker. And actually, I have to give her extra credit because she is up to just about any challenge to turn a "normal" recipe into a vegan one. It's quite impressive. Well, on her own fabulous blog Tastes Like Yum, she just posted a tribute to this fresh-from-the-oven New York law. Rainbow cupcakes! While her cupcakes are vegan, you can use a dairy yellow cake recipe instead and follow her instructions for creating the rainbow layers. Her pics are very helpful!

Visit Christina's Rainbow Cupcake blog post here and let's all toast to New York and hope we see more states follow suit soon. Rainbow cupcakes everywhere! All the time!

Honk if You Want Dessert from a Truck

Photo by Richard J. Velasco

My coworker sent me a link to Ed Levine's post today about a dessert truck at the corner of 8th Street and University Place in NYC. A dessert truck. Did you hear that? A DESSERT TRUCK!

For $5, take your pick of:
  • Homemade s'mores with homemade vanilla marshmallow and Valrhona dark chocolate
  • Homemade deep-fried brioche, dusted with cinnamon and sugar, and filled with vanilla pastry cream
  • Chocolate Bread Pudding
  • Molten Chocolate Cake
  • Slow-Baked Apples and Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Creme Brulee
  • And more (download the pdf of their menu from the Dessert Truck website)
This is not your run of the mill food truck, like the taco cart outside the public hospital. Pastry Chef Jerome Chang, formerly of Le Cirque, is in the driver seat.

I am so jealous! Maybe if we demand it on Eventful, it will make a road trip to Los Angeles...

New Yorkers out there, have you been?
