Vanille Patisserie is selling specialty cupcakes for a good cause

It’s not easy to make buying a jumbo cupcake feel virtuous, but Vanille Patisserie comes close with its rebooted “charity stud muffin” program.

What’s happening: This month, the bakery is donating $1 from each special veggie-decorated cupcake sold to Dion’s Dream in celebration of the organization’s third anniversary.
