socalfeminist asked: Hi! A personal opinion on bakeries was exactly what I was hoping for :D I've heard a lot about Baby Cakes because of the amount of advertising they have. They're just SO popular so that's why they're the only bakery I really know about. I was hoping for one that offers delivery but if they cakes are worth it then I'll totally consider driving to pick them up. I just want something yummy that everyone will enjoy.
happy birthday (in advance, i’m assuming)!
babycakes is just ok to me. they have some yummy treats, but their cupcakes are the only thing i truly don’t like there- i find them to be heavy and have a weird aftertaste. however, i did eat a mint chocolate chip birthday cake from there once that was insanely good. i actually had to ask a coworker to stage a cake intervention to stop myself from eating to much…
like i said in my original response, kim garr of c’est la v bakeshop makes my favorite vegan cupcakes, and they do deliver for a little extra. i had NO leftovers at my birthday party where i was the only vegan, so they are omnivore-approved too!
scootabaker delivers on a scooter! they have some really unique flavors that i enjoy.
i had mini yummy cupcakes at a friends birthday once and they were great! i tried their regular cupcakes before i was vegan and did not like them, but the vegan ones are delicious!
the sensitive baker makes great chai spiced cupcakes. i haven’t tried a lot of other flavors, but i couldn’t tell they were vegan or gluten-free at all!
i just had to do a presentation skills workshop for the HR department here, and i did it on vegan desserts, so if you need more dessert ideas, check out my doc here.
