I was actually working at the fair this time around. I've always been a fan of Ms Cupcake's delicious cakes & having met her in person, I'm a fan of Ms Cupcake herself. So when she asked me to help out on her stall at this year's fair I was super excited.
We got there early to set up the stall & I was extra excited to be able to choose my cupcake from any of the 12 flavours of the day.
This was made with a decent amount of Cheezly & a not so decent amount of sausage. In my opinion though pizza is all about the tomato sauce & the cheese so I was very happy with it, especially because it was only £1.50. The base was quite soft in the middle but it had a great crispy crust - yum.
Alongside the cupcakes (which include gluten free options) Ms Cupcake also had a selection of bakery style cookies, Cuppa Cupcakes & homemade lemon curd on the stall.
The cookies were perfectly soft in the centre & crispy around the edge & they were available in both Choc Chip & Walnut Choc Chip. I was very excited too see Ms Cupcake's Lemon Curd, as far as I know nobody else in the UK makes a vegan lemon curd & it's great to be able to just pick up a jar rather than stirring your own for hours over a hot stove.
Cuppa Cupcakes are a genius idea, they're a layered cake & frosting concoction which can be eaten with a spoon - perfect for munching on whilst wandering around a busy vegan fair or for snacking on on the train home without smearing frosting all over your face. This picture of the cuppa cupcake doesn't quite do it justice - they're brilliant!
I've said it before & I'll say it again, the lighting in my house is shit!
Of course I got some breaks during the day & I spent my time hunting down the best vegan food! First off I had to head over to the Wheaty stall as soon as I spotted this...
...vegan doner kebab! I'd tried this at Paris Vegan Day but sadly I left it too late there & they were running low on kebab & they were completely out of salad, there was no way that was happening again. I practically ran there!
This thing was much larger than it looks in the picture, in fact, I couldn't finish it in one go. I can confirm that once I'd removed the lettuce this was just as delicious microwaved 7 hours later!
I ended up taking another break when I saw someone walk past the stall holding a slice of pizza & I realised I had to have one too. Thankfully Ms Cupcake understands the need to hunt down food & didn't mind me running off in search of the cheese covered slice.
I've been relaxing on the sofa for a couple of hours now & my day is about to be complete because I'm going to eat this delicious cupcake.
I carefully carried this lovely looking Ferrero Rocher cupcake home in my cup-a-cake carrier (these are available on Ms Cupcakes stall at Greenwich Market now or soon at the new shop) & I'm very excited to be getting to eat my favourite cupcake again.
I had a whole lot of fun today & I loved working with the cupcake crew! I'm also really excited for Ms C & the gang as their first real bakery storefront is opening in just under two weeks, I'm already looking forward to visiting.
