Politics and Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel

My co-founders and I over at MomsLa had a fantastic event at the Venice Grind on Monday. LA City Councilwoman Janice Hahn came and talked to a group of voters at the Mar Vista coffee shop about her run for the 36th Congressional District seat.

The seat was given up by Jane Harman who retired shortly after being elected to her 9th term in Congress. (Personally, I think she should have to pay for the special election that will cost taxpayers more than $1 million). Hahn talked about her accomplishments on the city council and what she wants to do if elected. To read more about Hahn see MomsLA cofounder Mar Vista Mom’s post about the event or the Mar Vista Patch article by Kelly Hartog.¬†

Snacks were provided by Earl’s Gourmet Grub, Whole Foods West LA, and me, YvonneInLA. I made Gluten-Free Vegan chocolate cupcakes¬†with salted caramel and vanilla frosting. I will post how I made them later today. Or later next week...
