Vegan Wedding Cake, Cupcakes and Dip
Dear Bloggers - readers & writers,
Kevin and I have just returned from our most wonderful wedding and fantastic Canada-travels. I am an honest woman now (hah) and loved the intimate and quiet nature of our ceremony. Despite (or maybe because of) being gigantically pregnant, I had a great time with Kevin, celebrating with our family and close friends.
Sadly, we missed having Kevin's parents, our bestest bud Kim and other work mates around us while we celebrated, but those who were present filled us the spaces of our celebration with great laughs, awesome memories and total kindness.
Food, food, on to food. We went to a Mediterranean restaurant after the ceremony - La Luna in Hamilton of course. The food was great. But nothing bet the decadent vegan chocolate cakes that we had to top off the night. I love/hate Whole Foods so much sometimes. They did manage to pull through for me on this one, but I still have niggly feelings about their practices. (Damn seduction by chocolate).
My sister made the BEST vegan cupcakes I have ever had! She has been experimenting with baking in ways that are better explained as explorations of studio-quality food. Vegan cupcakes did not deter her during my trip home and she made both the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes from VCTOTW (which we bought her during the trip).
They were fantastic! Emily is a star!
My mom also made some kickin' dips - a cilantro infused guacamole and a dynamite tomato dip. The day after the wedding I spent lunch time with my face in the pita and dip.
The last foodie bit to share is from our trip to Montreal. We spent two nights in this great city. Both for honeymooning and also for the intention of seeking out options for our next move. Loved every minute, but our travels around The Plateau was dreamy and we found the best veg thai restaurant! Totally impressive food at ChuChai on St. Denis street. Check them out!
I can't wait to catch up on everyone's blogs! Missed you guys.
Have a great week!
Lots of love,
