Apple Cupcakes and 3 Other Recipes to Honor Steve Jobs

steve jobsAs we pay tribute to a genius, a visionary, and a man who changed the way we live and work, food might not be the obvious choice as a medium for honoring Steve Jobs. Unless you're someone who celebrates, mourns, and deals with everything with food. Like this bakery in Rutherford, New Jersey for example.

Sweet Avenue, a vegan bakery, has unveiled its Apple Pie Cupcake in honor of the man who gave us the iPhone, among other amazing things. In addition to giving a shout-out to Apple, Sweet Avenue is donating proceeds to cancer research in Jobs' name. I'll eat to that.

You know what else I'll eat in honor of the man who gave me my own personal GPS?
