Vegan Cupcakes in Wilmington, DE (of all places!)

I had a few minutes to spare before I picked up my son from preschool and I really wanted a cup of decaf. The most convenient spot happened to be a cupcake shop named Cupcake Heaven. So, while I was ordering my coffee, I decide to ask if hey had vegan cupcakes and surprisingly they did! Now, Wilmington, DE is not the friendliest of places for a vegan or even a vegetarian for that matter. There is not one single exclusively vegetarian restaurant in the area (I don't even think there is one in the whole state!). With that said, I was pleasantly surprised that they offered something vegan.

I ordered a chocolate cupcake with strawberry frosting and waited to get home to taste it.  So how was it? It was actually pretty good. A very simple, moist and fluffy dark chocolate cake with a straight forward buttercream. The artificial strawberry flavor tasted a bit like Strawberry Quick, but it wasn't overly sweet for which I am very appreciative. I don't like when you bite into frosting and it hurts your teeth.

Since I am trying to rein in on my sugar consumption, I probably won't be hitting up Cupcake Heaven that often, but it is good to know it is there, specially when I have to bring my daughter to a birthday party that will serving a cake made with eggs. Now I won't have to dirty my kitchen making just one cupcake!
