My secret to the best vegan chocolate cake

As the founder of a vegan bakery that specializes in making treats you could never tell are vegan, I get asked A LOT of questions about vegan baking so I thought I’d start answering some of those here on the blog on a segment I call “Ask a Vegan Baker.” I know, super creative, but it’s self explanatory! Today’s question: what is the secret to the perfect chocolate cake? As a lover of all things chocolate, this one is very close to my heart. The answer is pretty simple: the perfect chocolate cake is not overly sweet.  A lot of chocolate cakes out there can be hurt-your-face-sweet and that is not good. All the chocolate cakes at the Curious Cat...

The award winning cupcake

I call it the gateway drug. The Once Pecan a Time Cookie is the one item in the Curious Cat Bakery menu that literally everyone loves. It doesn’t matter if you don’t like nuts, if you’re not really a cookie person (whhhaaat? that’s a thing?) or if you’re not really a sweets person (again, what?!). Everyone who tries it, loves it. So when I decided to compete in the Morean Arts Center Annual Cupcake Contest this last Saturday, I knew I had to incorporate that cookie in my entry. I settled on a chocolate cake with fudge frosting and a cookie across the top. That way you get a little bit of cookie with every bite. Well, I’m happy to...
