Just a quick post today. I’m super excited to be a sponsor for Bake and Destroy’s slamtacular wrestling-themed virtual baking contest! I love wrestling and you probably suspect I love baking too, so just look at the amazing poster above and tell me this doesn’t make you want to do a moonsault into a pool of peanut butter vegan buttercream right now? If that wasn’t enough the mighty wrestling diva Beth Phoenix herself will be among the contest judges. You better start getting your best wresting promo game on, it’s going to be a Royal (icing) Rumble like no other.

I’ll be contributing toward the prize pool copies of not just Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, but also a raincheck for our much anticipated Vegan Pie in the Sky out this fall. Sounds like a sweet deal to me, so if you feel you have the passion, commitment and cojones to rule the ring of online vegan baking send your entries to the SugarSlam before July 11th. The amazing prizes alone should get send you immediately into your both your best day-glo wrestling trunks and baking mitts.

And Madisonites, remember that I’ll be in your town in a few days for Mad River City’s very own Veg Fest on June 19th. I’m taking my seitan potato taco demo straight to you and there will be samples! Plus don’t miss the other fantastic presenters such as Jasmin and Mariann of Our Hen House and Kelly Peloza, the Vegan Cookie Connoisseur, plus many more.

Lastly there’s still space for my seitan tamale class next week at the Brooklyn Kitchen! June 16th, starting at 6:30 learn to make spicy red chile seitan tamales, or give the class as a gift to someone you wish would make you tamales. Remember to mention “terry’s discount” in the check out for a store credit towards most anything at the fabulous Brooklyn Kitchen!
