The folks behind the Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge, which was held throughout local eateries in October, have cooked up a new idea for Earth Day. 10 local bakers will each whip up 100 vegan cupcakes, making for a whopping 1,000 cupcakes, which will be sold for charity. The event, aptly titled "1000 Vegan Cupcakes for Charity," will go down on April 22 at the Embassy Suites' Tower Bridge Bistro (100 Capitol Mall, Sacramento; 916-326-5050). These cupcakes will also be part of a competition to see who's vegan treats reign supreme.
Gluten-free and sugar-free cupcakes will also be available at the event, which runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Information: sacveganchallenge.com.
