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!

    It’s so nice to see vegans being featured on these food TV shows. Hopefully people will get the message that vegan doesn’t mean it has to taste bad.

    I was so ecited. I jumped, clapped and shouted for Chloe because I am vegan and I wanted her to make her statement, as it were. I hope to learn alot from her.

    That is so exciting and kudos to Chloe!

    My husband and i have had people over and we always win them with our food. They always leave our house saying things like “i did not know you could eat so good as a vegan!” Now i am starting to bake and so far-so-good, but i want to get really good to start bringing goodies to work…

    Who needs animal ingredients to come up with delicious recipes? Not this girl.

    Loved watching Chloe and was so disappointed in the snarky comments the woman whom she beat made concerning vegans. As a foodie I love many vegan ideas and eat vegan many days per week. Food Network has way to many anti vegan hosts and this is so disappointing. Thus I prefer those who have food shows on TLC and on the Green Planet channel. If I were near Chloe I would buy her food items.

    I also was super excited. What stupidity and self righteousness she was up against. It echo’s Food Network’s attitude, so I was shocked Food Network aired it at all actually. Yes, they have had some token vegan/veggie things but they are condescending tokens, and this was a contest! Woo hoo. I didn’t know her but I was so proud of her! I felt like a mom, go, sweetie, go! She did us all sooooo very good. Not that she had any pressure or anything, ha ha.
