It's always been our mission to create really great baked goods that happen to be vegan. No settling for dry or dense cakes or choosing from a tiny list of boring vegan options. Go ahead and serve one of our cakes to your friend who has "never eaten vegan food." They'll have no idea.
But how we create our baked goods is just as important. We built our bakery around the idea that your dollar is your vote for the world you want. For us, that means a few things.
• Our ingredients will always be vegan. We've done the label-reading, and we've contacted the companies. Our ingredients are free from dairy, eggs, gelatin, shellac, confectioners' glaze, carmine, and all those other sneaky things--right down to the sprinkles.
• We use only fair trade chocolate and cocoa powder, and we use local products whenever we can.
• We buy many of our supplies at local suppliers or small businesses, and we've been proudly Amazon- and Whole Foods-free for over a year.
• We make the most sustainable choices that are possible and practical. While we are still using (recyclable!) plastic containers, we've done our best to replace single-use items with lower-waste alternatives and continue to make more changes as we can.
