Baking Vegan cupcakes and Beauty Samples (Dr Bronner's, Badger, Balance Me)

You probably noticed that cupcake or fairy cake pictures are becoming a recurring feature to my Sunday blog posts.  I am working my way through my Vegan cookbook.  Last week I made Crimson Velveteen Cupcakes (Red Velvet Cake).  The picture on the left are the cake prior to cooking.  For anyone who isn't familiar with the US craze for Red Velvet cake it basically is a rich chocolate sponge with red food colouring.  I finished them off with pink vegan buttercream.  

I like when orders come with surprise samples, it's a great incentive to shop again or to test products you wouldn't normally order. I always been a fan of Dr Bronner liquid soap but have not tried the solid bars. I'm intrigued to see how these will compare. Like Dr Bronner's I think Badger is a very known brand in the US. I haven't tried anything from them as they can be a little harder to find in the UK. I look forward to sampling this cuticle care cream. The Balance Me Eye Cream sample was free with Glamour magazine and I'm interested to give it a whirl. I've never been one for using this type of product so it will be a new experience.
