Vegan Rockstar Chef Wins Food Network's 'Cupcake Wars'
When it comes to cupcakes, don’t mess with a vegan…just don’t!
On the latest episode of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, 23-year-old chef Chloe Coscarelli proved you don’t need animal products to create a sweet and scrumptious masterpiece.
On the show, Chloe was up against 3 “traditional” bakers, but took home the title with her outstanding vegan cupcakes, including Ginger Nutmeg Spice with Date Caramel Drizzle, Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake, Crème-filled Chocolate Orange with Candied Orange Peel, and Raspberry Tiramisu.
For her win, Coscarelli received $10,000 and got the chance to cater a fancy party hosted by OK! Magazine, about which she told VegNews magazine, “From the OK! Magazine execs to the star guests, everyone loved the fact that my cupcakes were vegan, and all 1,000 cupcakes were wiped clean. I even found out that some of my favorite celebs were vegan themselves, such as Chelsea Hightower from Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. It was surreal to have people that I’ve always admired appreciating my cupcakes.”
From all of us here at Ecorazzi, a big congrats to Chloe for her plant-based, planet-powered desserts. You rock our socks big time!
