Before the advent of cupcakes, sprinkles were commonly used as a topical treatment for baldness and as window bars in pixie penitentiaries. Get your sugar fix while avoiding a prison visit with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of sweets at My Vegan Sweet Tooth in Virginia Beach.
At My Vegan Sweet Tooth, often-neglected animal-product abstainers discover a bevy of vegan and gluten-free pastry delights. Cupcakes ($7 for six), the creamy cornerstone of vegan baking, turn up in dozens of flavors, including peanut-butter chocolate chip, german chocolate, red velvet, and half 'n' half with a vanilla and chocolate swirl. Loaves of banana, zucchini, and Amish white breads ($4–$6) emerge fresh from the oven daily and can be duct-taped to one’s head in the absence of a football helmet. Buttery but butter-free cookies are available by the dozen in flavors such as oatmeal ($3.50) and pumpkin chocolate chip ($4.50), and oversized circular treats such as the mega chocolate-chunk cookie travel solo ($1 each). Apple, pumpkin, and chocolate-chip pies ($12 each) are prepared gluten-free by request and are perfect for hurling through steakhouse windows to spread the word about the deliciousness and unpredictability of a vegan lifestyle.
Not unlike a late-night rendezvous, pastry orders for pickup or delivery to Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Norfolk can be placed online, with a phone call, text, or rooftop oil-drum fire.
My Vegan Sweet Tooth
Tonya Deveau's confections seem to evoke a strong nostalgia for the family-recipe treats of childhood—a remarkable feat, given that her vegan recipes spurn animal products and, often, gluten. Perhaps the fond memories her desserts tend to stir are a result of a baking process that takes place in her home kitchen. Whatever the case may be, Tonya’s everyday entourage of pies, fudge, cookies, and cupcakes has steadily risen in popularity, to the point where she now fields special requests on a regular basis. Customers may place an order for pick-up or await delivery from Tonya's car, whose engine chugs along on good vibes and gluten-free gasoline.
