VeganMoFo - MoFo has left the building

[cue somber music]

It's the end of the Vegan MoFo as we know it. MoFo has left us with hundreds of blog posts, countless recipes, and invaluable anecdotes and stories . Now it's time to say goodbye. I am celebrating MoFo's life with a few of my own MoFo goodies. Ah, MoFo brought us much chocolate.

Halloweegan Graveyard Cake

This graveyard cake is topped with the tombstones from my Graveyard Cupcakes, as well as Happy Halloweegan Pumpkins (though they forgot to say cheese here), Chocolate Spiders, and the little Happy Vegan Ghosts who started the whole Halloweegan insanity. There are only three ghosts on this cake: the Ghost of MoFo past, present and future!

I made it! 20 posts! This month has been so much fun, thank you again for ALL your wonderfully sweet and inspiring comments! I truly appreciate all your kind words!

  7. Hi,
    Yesterday I made the one eyed veggie monsters and stuffed peppers for my Mum, Dad and brother! (I filled the peppers with brown rice, pine nuts, lemon juice, parsley, basil, onion and squash. Yum!)
    They loved it! The one eyed veggie monsters tasted wonderful; they had a very clean and yummi vegetable taste, perfect for introducing vegan food for non vegans I think. It was a very succesful Halloweegan dinner:)
    Thanks so much for these tasty, creative recipes! I can't wait to try out more of them!

  14. oh yeah, you killed it. great job. I loved your posts. Totally rad.

    I almost made everyday, but was foiled by a crappy internet connection at a motel 6. It's driving me nuts. Still, I did 30 out of 31, which will just have to be good enough.

    I did a halloween post yesterday - with 3 or 4 different baked goods, including Pan de Muerto. It was fun!

  38. Love the graveyard cake, especially the fuzzy ghosts. I could just eat them up (bwah ha ha ha).

    I made a graveyard cake once for my sister's bday, she's a halloween bday girl. She always had much cooler cakes than me - I'm on feb 15, blah!

    I LOVED reading your blog this month and from what I've seen of your November posts, I still love it :)
