Vegan Cupcakes for a Stag and Doe

Our friends Sam and Nick are getting married. Last night there was a Stag and Doe for them.

I've recently learned that Stag and Does are a Canadian (if not Ontarian) phenomenon so an explanation is probably warranted.
A Stag and Doe (or, alternatively, a Buck and Doe) is a celebration thrown on behalf of a bridal party to raise money for the bride- and groom-to-be, in an effort to give them a healthy financial start once they exchange vows. There's usually a DJ and dancing, there is always a bar, a raffle and tons of midway and casino-style games with the proceeds going toward the bridal couple.

I made cupcakes. It was a cowboy theme. Our friends won some vuvuzelas. It was a good night.

AJ and Melissa won the coveted World Cup raffle prize, complete with vuvuzelas!

Good friends, good times, good cupcakes and hopefully a solid lot of money raised for the wonderful couple. I can't wait for the wedding!

Looks like a great party! thank you for explaining sag and doe. I had no idea. Oh, wait, your cupcakes are beautiful!

Jenny - Thanks! I was battling with the summer heat and humidity, I was so worried the icing would end up a runny mess. Welcome to the blog!

Mihl - Thanks! Yes, Stag and Does are very popular around here but not so well known out of southern Ontario so I figured an explanation was warranted!
