Vegan Fluffy Buttercream Frosting

Wow! It's hilarious what a bunch of lame-o's actually take the time to post their anti-vegan chatter on this post! Go and bark at some Buddhists too, while you're at it. How dare anyone try and live "cruelty free". Ha! I love how nobody questions Catholics on Fridays during Lent. Agh, anyway. It's the internet and therefore you get to hide behind your avatar. Bravo! Phew, now that I got that out of the way, I'm happy to report that this is a great frosting, to which I added some blueberry preserves to make a pastel frosting for a 2-year-old's birthday party. The kids and adults alike LOVED it and are all now converted vegans. Isa Chandra Moskowitz was right. It takes a cupcake to take over the world. XOXO

Thanks @shoes for the one-stop 'ethnic' food shop! Still looking for Mid-East, esp. Turkish stuff in New Haven. I'll be a pedestrian at least for a while, spoiled by the conveniences of public transportation...Thanks again!

Wow, newhavener07, so happy to hear, not only that there's so much stuff around town, but that you all tend to be really responsive! I just discovered cityseeds and would like to get involved in some way. Thanks so much for pointing me toward Elaine's...Really looking forward to all this. Take care!

Thanks for your excellent guidance!
That place, Edge of the Woods, is that Ital? I thought I saw an Ital restaurant somewhere between Westville heading back toward downtown. Or is there a Golden Crust in NH? I like their veg patties now and again.

Thanks again, and looking forward to the shift!

We're moving to New Haven, CT (Fair Haven Heights) this month and I'd be really grateful if someone could point me toward the best places to get the best vegan goodies:

>Middle Eastern (esp. Turkish) foods, products and spices?

>Best East Asian grocer, especially if they have fresh tofu?

>Best place for South Asian groceries and spices?

>Ital, especially veggie patties?

>Best farmer's market for produce? (We visited the one in Westville area, but were disappointed at so few actual vegetables on the tables...)

I'm an avid foodie and generally prefer to cook at home, but if you want to recommend restaurants, I'd welcome any suggestions.
