Look cute as a cupcake as you indulge in the delicious treats from this vegan-friendly bakery.

The story behind the name of this LA-based bakery is just as sweet as the delicious treats they serve. The owner and founder, Chef CiCi, named the business after her grandmothers, Madeline and Pearl. Madeline is her father’s mother. Madeline represented creativity, African culture, and arts. Pearl is her maternal grandmother, who represents faith, elegance, and wisdom. Chef CiCi’s passion and love for cooking can be tasted in every item she bakes, like the delicious cinnamon rolls, which can be made vegan upon request. Vegan cookies, brownies, and loaves are also available, such as snickerdoodle cookies and banana bread loaves.
Chef Brandon, the owner of this bakeshop, began experimenting with healthy alternatives to sugar- and carb-packed sweets after discovering he had a gluten allergy in 2013. That’s when he created the one-of-a-kind vegan avocado keto brownies, which are filled with vegan chocolate chips and are soy-free, xanthan gum-free, and packed with creamy avocados. Vegan keto cinnamon rolls, vegan Big Mike donuts, vegan chocolate chip muffins, and vegan matcha keto truffles are also available. Some of these items come in non-vegan varieties, so be sure to check the “vegan” box, and they’ll whip up the goods for you sans dairy and egg!
Do you like cupcakes and the element of surprise? If you answered yes, then The Cupcake Collection is the bakery for you! The vegan cupcakes can be ordered in a pack of six and include a pre-selected assortment of baker’s choice flavors, such as sweet potato, chocolate, vanilla, or red velvet. All four varieties are also gluten-free.
