Oh goodness me *drool*. Wow! Are you willing to share any recipes? Are those chocolate chips on top of the banoffee cupcakes, or toffee pieces? If the latter, where did you buy them or how did you make them? They look sooooo good!
http://www.newvegantable.com/2009/10/vegan-toffee/ was where I got the toffee from, then I just broke it into little chips to put on top. and I just used a mashed banana in a normal cupcake recipe and some leftover banana nesquik powder in the icing (these were made in my very early days!) which I'm not 100% sure is vegan so I never used it after that.

A few more, then I'll take a breather before uploading cupcake photos from two charity bake-sales I did in September (if people like photos of vegan cupcakes?).
Macaroons. Chocolate, strawberry, orange, lemon, lime. Adaptation of recipe from the Vegan Patisserie.
Jaffa cupcake. Tasted better than it looked (you can't really see the orange jelly in the photo). My recipe.
Mushroom meal. Made for my Mum, who loves mushrooms! Stuffed mushrooms with quinoa, butternut squash, red onion, peppers, edamame. Mushroom rice with mushrooms and peas. (Both my recipes.) Served with mushroom gravy (Veganomicon) (not in photo, oops)
Silken chocolate mousse cake (from My Sweet Vegan)
Meal from Bamboo Garden, Seattle. Spring roll, special fried rice, chow mein and something the name of which I forget but which was very tasty (dumplings, broccoli and carrot). Was a bit heavy and far too much food for one meal, but they gave me a take away box and it kept me going for three meals!
OK. I have been wanting to ask this for weeks, but I have not, due to possible embarrassment for asking what is probably obvious to everyone else. What grain is porridge made from? Is it oats, like what Americans call oatmeal? If not, please enlighten me, because it looks REALLY good. Jealousy about those yummy photos has forced me to ask! My Irish, English, Scottish, and French ancestors are probably rolling in their graves right now, disgusted with my silliness. LOL
Sushi made with nori, sushi rice, mirin, rice wine vinegar, wasabi and various combinations of red bell pepper, cucumber, avocado and spring onion. Served with home made red chilli dipping sauce and pickled ginger slices.

I woke up late this morning (10 hours sleep - more than I have had since 2006) famished with low blood sugar so made this (Pan fried mushrooms, scrambled silken tofu with mayo, defrosted Vegourmet, fried tomato, baked beans, potato cakes and Vegetarians choice burger):
My only objection to Firestorm's fry up is that I much prefer sausages to burgers. So I would ditch the burger, replace with a couple of sausages (Linda McCartney/Redwood/ Fry's, all good!) and then devour. Nom!
