Step Into Cupcake Land...

I've got something sweet and delicious for you today!
My friend, Shannon Marie of Rawdorable has recently released a fabulous raw cupcake ebook. Most of you are probably familiar with her site already. This chica's kitchen creativity knows no bounds, and it's hard not to check in daily for her latest goods.


For the past three years Shannon has been sharing recipes, ideas, and family fun via her blog. She prefers to blog about the sweet stuff, (can you see why I love her?) but you'll notice one particular theme in her blog, and that is cupcakes! Her serious passion for these little gems has resulted in many creations sprinkled around her site - so many, in fact that she's found the perfect way to bring all her cakes into one compact place to share with the rest of us! Her long time dream of having a raw recipe book has come true - this busy wife and mommy of Jacob & Hayden did it all on her own.


The Little Rawdorable Cupcake Book That Could has a lot to offer. It features 25 raw vegan cupcake recipes, along with plenty of tips and tricks. The book is packed - there's so much going on in here that you'll want to take time to read through slowly to make sure you don't miss a thing.
The bright colors and photographs (one for each recipe) will have your mouth watering in seconds. Enjoy: Bunny Spice Cupcakes, Tastes Like PB&J Cupcakes, Citrus Confetti, Creme Filled Lemon Cupcake, Chocolate Cupcakes, Better Than Sex Cupcakes, and Ruby Red Chai Cupcakes, to name a few...  and there's a cake for every occasion!
Oh, and if you want cupcake apparel check out her online store, where she sells cute shirts!
Check out her newest project which involves getting Ellen DeGeneres to eat a raw cupcake... maybe Ellen would like a moonie pie too, what do ya think?

I was inspired to make her Rawtess Cupcakes in 2008 and got on a bit of a cupcake kick too! Yum, they were good!


On another sweet note, The Moonie Pie Challenge countdown continues! I've had 3 more entries since my last post, so I added them. You can check out the latest entries here! I have NO idea how I'm going to choose a winner... too bad I can't sample them all!

Thanks so much for doing this spectacular review. I really appreciate it. You're the best!

I think Ellen needs to try a raw cupcake and a moonie pie, as well as some other raw treats. We need to bring raw desserts to the mainstream. This is such a tasty way to do it :-)

Great review Heathy! I purchased Shannon's book the day she released it. I was so proud of her for finally doing this. I've been wanting her to create one since I discovered her blog two years ago. It is fabulous! So many talented young raw women out there - how wonderful!!! Peace!=)

Capt'n Amazing's wife said...

I think most of the world's problems would be solved if everyone (including Ellen) had a raw cupcake on a regular basis. I'm going to buy the book soon as well!

Sarah said...

I bought the cupcake e book and it rocks! I love that she has savory cupcakes, lower fat versions, and so much variety!

I'm a total cupcake convert thanks to Shannon! Nice review!

HiHoRosie said...

You and Shannon are two of my faves! I recently bought her e-book and am looking forward to recreating some of the awesomeness when I have some time. Can't wait!

Also, can't wait for your moonie pie contest. What a hard decision you'll have to make - all the entries so far look incredible!!!

I love Shannonmarie. And I also bought her cupcake book just before I left for raw chef school here at 105degrees, so I will have to crack it open when I get back home. Also I wanted to compete in the moonie pie challenge but realised I can't whist I am here at school. Despite that I still want to buy the book and make it anyway!!!
