The delicious vegan cupcakes from Pippa's Pantry are coming to Carindale Shopping Centre with a specially designed Valentine's Day theme and we cannot be more excited. If you don't know who or what Pippa's Pantry is, Pippa is a tribe unto her own, who has managed to attract a cult following from The Brisbane Vegan Markets at West End. Pippa's Pantry is locally based here in Brisbane, specialising in creating dairy-free, egg-free and gelatine-free cakes and sweets. Pippa has created her a cupcake empire using vegan products, with a creative quirky twist, as she lovingly names her cupcakes, such as the Cookie Monster cupcake.
Pippa's Cookie Monster and Rose Pistachio vegan cupcakes
Yes, you guessed it, the famous Sesame Street Cookie Monster is lovingly replicated in a vegan cupcake. I had the absolute pleasure of trying her Cookie Monster cupcake and Rose Pistachio cupcake and they are moist, not too rich (I say that being a sweet tooth addict) and deliciously light. If the word vegan or Cookie Monster doesn't catch your attention, then the bright blue vanilla bean buttercream icing and vegan chocolate chip cookie with a sprinkle of glitter on top of the Cookie Monster cupcake sure will. The Rose Pistachio cupcake is to die for, with its smooth tasting rosewater, vanilla bean, buttercream icing, topped with pistachio nuts. It is deviously sweet and satisfying.
While the Cookie Monster cupcake isn't available at Pippa's pop-up at Westfield Carindale Shopping Centre on Thursday February 13th and Friday February 14th (V Day), her famous cupcakes, mini cakes, edible vegan cookie dough jars and vegan love note sugar cookies will be available to sweeten any valentine. Be quick, as I know from experience, these goodies will fly off the shelf. Pippa's Pantry pop-up will be located at Westfield Carindale Shopping Centre at Level 1 outside Sushi Sushi and Dymocks. The pop-up kicks off from 9am to 9pm on Thursday February 13th and from 9am on Friday, February 14th from 9am to 5:30pm.
