Today would have been John Lennon’s 76th birthday. It’s difficult to sum up the legacy of such a legendary artist. He could be a polarizing figure at times, but ultimately, he challenged the way we think and tried to make the world a little better. To celebrate, I made a special scotcheroo cupcake. Never heard of scotcheroos? Well, scotcheroos are dessert bars made with chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, and Rice Krispies.

Peace and love, peace and love, peace and love! Today is the one-and-only Ringo Starr’s birthday. And as has become the annual tradition, Ringo has asked people around the world to take a moment to wish for peace and love at noon today. My contribution to this annual peace-and-love fest are these tie-dye vanilla cupcakes topped with edible peace signs and hearts. Sweet, soft, and bursting with color, these groovy little beauties are sure to brighten anyone’s day.
It’s Sir Paul McCartney’s birthday! And we’re gonna party with a truly one-of-a-kind vegan cupcake. This cupcake combines everyone’s favorite flavor, chocolate, with classic English flavors like lavender and lemon. Rich, moist, and decadent, you would never guess that these cupcakes are vegan. So grab some cupcake liners and warmup the oven ’cause we’re gonna have a good time.
Today’s post is a celebration of the inimitable and enigmatic George Harrison. Today would have been his 73rd birthday, and in honor of him I made a special cupcake. These vegan chai spice cupcakes are delightfully subtle and nuanced, just like George. They are just as moist and fluffy as any other cupcake. And what they lack in dairy they make up for in spice. A delicious treat for any occasion; they make a perfect addition to a day celebrating this “quiet” man’s legacy. So for George Harrison (and gardeners everywhere): this one’s for you!
