My Sweet Mid-year Status Report

Vegan Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting

It’s past the mid-year point and well past the time most New Year’s resolutions have fallen by the wayside. Me? I’m still going strong on my resolution to try every cupcake flavor from the vegan bakery, Sweet Aha! And not just the cupcakes, I’ve extended the goal to encompass everything that’s available including the muffins, scones and cookies.

Bet you thought I couldn’t keep such a resolution and that I would crack under such decadence. But no, I’m a trooper and so far I’ve stuck to it and with going to the gym regularly so I can keep up with the resolution. Experts say accountability is the key to reaching your goal. So here goes, the latest flavors I’ve tried:

Pictured above, a classic flavor combo – chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting, drizzled with chocolate. The peanut butter flavor is a bit on the subtle side and like all of their offerings, it wasn’t overly sweet.

Vegan Chocolate Cupcake

Chocolate frosting on a chocolate cupcake is just like taking a big bite of devil’s food cake. As always, the cupcakes are all ever so light and super fluffy.

Vegan German Chocolate Cupcake

Another chocolate cupcake, but this time with chocolate buttercream frosting with German chocolate topping. I’ve always loved German chocolate cake back in the day, especially the topping. It’s exactly like it but in a cute cupcake form.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffin

I’ve had my share of vegan muffins, can’t say I’ve enjoyed each one. It actually took me awhile to branch out and try a Sweet Aha! muffin (pictured above is the chocolate chip). I don’t know why I hesitated so long, like their cupcakes, the muffins are airy and light and made with all natural, organic, vegan ingredients.

Vegan Lemon Poppy Muffin

In fact, for their lemon poppy seed muffins, they actually squeezed and zested fresh lemons, by hand no less, for a pure, real lemony taste.

Vegan Banana Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Lest you go away thinking there’s only chocolate, chocolate or chocolate cupcakes available, I also tried a banana cupcake with coffee buttercream frosting with peanuts. Out of their many flavors, there’s usually a selection of three options: a vanilla one, some sort of chocolate one and one other flavor. You really can’t go wrong with any one of them.

Next check-in, end of the year, until then I’ll be striving to stay the course…

    I’m cheering you on from the sidelines. I know there will be times when you’ll wonder if you’ll ever make it through, but stick with it. I’m pretty sure it’ll be worth it, and you’re doing a great job so far!

    That really is a great resolution. As much as I love change, I am a creature of habit when it comes to desserts. Have fun with it!

    These cupcakes look so delicious. yum! And what a great resolution. I should follow yours and then I’d probably be better at keeping my running routine more regular.

    Randi – It’s the best kind of resolution. :-)

    Jenny – Me too, I figure I can always go back to my favorite ones once I’m done trying them all.

    Lovlie – It definitely keeps me on track – no gym, no cupcake.

    Brilliant resolution, you can do it and you are a TROOPER! I just started my workout plan this week, I’ve been waking up at 4 in the morning to do my morning runs! I just love the fresh cold morning air! I’m hungry right now and I really want some of that cupcakes/muffins. The banana cupcake with coffee buttercream looks yummy! And beautiful shots of them! x
