Repost: There's Bacon in my Cupcake!

As some of you may know, I have recently teamed up with some fabulous ladies to form a blog called The Mindful Mavens. It was started as a way to share various vegan lifestyle options available in Ottawa, including food, businesses, events, etc. Click here to learn more about who we are. I recently wrote this post, which is about cupcakes. Look how gorgeous they are!

The two ladies at The Compassionate Rabbit know how to make a good vegan cupcake. Inspired by their pet rabbits, they aim to share love and compassion through delicious vegan treats. Willing to take on a new challenge, they went to their Facebook fans to decide on a new flavor. It just so happens that they chose mine! What was this winning flavor? Well, Maple Bacon of course.
Not only did they succeed on the flavor notes and a great coconut bacon recipe, but they went above
and beyond by adding some bacon bits inside the cupcake and topping it off with a mini waffle. 
I got to try 3 kinds: Maple Bacon, Cookies n Cream, Coconut Lime. All had delicious combinations of flavor, texture and toppings.
They sell their treats at farmer’s markets and on the University of Ottawa campus on a regular basis. The girls also participate in some National Capital Vegetarian Association (NCVA) events, such as the Holiday Howl. They love getting special orders, like these Hello Kitty themed cupcakes for Myriam from Beauteoptic. The ladies from The Compassionate Rabbit were extremely accommodating to Myriam’s allergies, and again exceeding expectation with great customer service and delivery.
