Renewal, writing, and cupcakes from heaven!

Ah my favorite time of year is finally upon us here in Rapid City. Its warming up and the Earth is coming back to life. Renewal is in the air. <3

There are some big things happening here at SoTV. The book is coming along, all be it not as quickly as I had hoped. I'm hoping for a release date of August 1st. Stay tuned for updates!

We have a wonderful new Vegan business here in the Black Hills that will be up and running in early June. Welcome Ginger Twins Vegan Cupcake Company! I had the joy of meeting the younger Ginger Twin, Shannon Crane, last month when the ladies donated 4 dozen of their amazing cupcakes to our local benefit production of The Vagina Monologues. She then graced my door step a week later with 1 dozen of my new favorite treat, their Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cupcake with Orange Buttercream. These cakes are pure heaven! I was skeptical at first of pumpkin (my personal favorite flavor of anything) paired with orange, but whoa mama are these good! The flavors balance in a way that creates this burst of sublime ecstasy on the palette. I had to share the love at the arts center, otherwise I would have eaten the whole box.

I've also sampled their PB&J, which features white cake filled with strawberry jam, and topped with a wonderfully creamy peanut butter frosting. Its the best PB&J you'll ever eat. Their cakes have a wonderful texture that is neither too dry nor overly moist. Its that perfect middle of the road crumb that gives a delightful mouth feel. Their cakes are also just the right amount of sweet. I often find that vegan bakers up the sugar content in the frosting to tooth achingly sweet. The Ginger Twins have got it just right. These ladies are certainly going to hit the ground running in June! I can't wait to try all they've got and introduce all my local peeps to the goodness that is the Ginger Twins Vegan Cupcake Company.

If you'd like information on how you can indulge in a Ginger Twin creation visit the ladies at their website or find them on Facebook. And be sure to let them know Ashley at Season of The Vegan sent ya!
