Cake Thieves at Vegan Shop-Up

The simple fact of the matter is: if it's at Lula's, I'm going to try it (yes, even black licorice ice cream- which is REALLY good- even if you don't like black licorice).  This credo has served me well over the years, and it was there that I was lucky enough to try Cake Thieves' cinnamon buns for the first time.  So when I snagged myself this s'mores cinnamon bun at the April Vegan Shop-Up, I was more than a little excited because I knew to expect something good.

Thanks, Lauren, for suggesting a pre-wrap photo; the un-wrap was not nearly as gorgeous!

If you attended said Shop-Up, you'd know why this picture is so blurry: it was PACKED!  The event was scheduled from noon to six, but most vendors were sold out by 4:00 (I missed out on so many goodies from Gone Pie!).  Cake Thieves was offering cinnamon buns in the following flavors: pumpkin spice, original gansta, pb chocolate, chocolate covered strawberry, and s'mores; I snagged a s'mores.

As well as the pumpkin flavor lent itself to the cinnamon bun, so too did the s'mores.  Just the right amount of sweetness and flavor; what do you know?  I'd recommend this one too!  I admit I got a little distracted when the foreign woman next to me asked what s'mores meant; imagine what it would be like to have made it to adulthood without ever having had s'mores.  Next time I'm going to give the peanut butter chocolate flavor a whirl...perhaps along with another s'mores.

Keep your eyes open for Cake Thieves.


Find them at Vegan Shop-Ups, The Bean, Betola, and more.

  1. I'll have to take your word for it that black licorice in anything can taste good. Nope. I'll never personally find out, which doesn't mean I don't believe you. I believe everything you say about desserts because you have more experience than most people in dessert couture. :)


Have you got something to say? It would be so nice to hear from you!
