VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF #182: A Street Cart Made Sausages From Cupcakes

So what if we have sausage and cupcake sellers if not a one of them masquerades as the other? These delicious-looking cupcakewursts were made at home by the good folks at the Cupcake Project, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t be achieved for Vancouver’s streets. Some enterprising sweet tooth should please get on it (especially the “hot dog” version on a halved Long John donut with raspberry sauce). That would be much appreciated.
