Sticky Finger Bakery: Yummy Vegan & Gluten-Free Cakes

1 04 2010

Sticky Fingers Bakery is a great alternative for those looking for vegan (without eggs or dairy products) and gluten-free baked goods such as cake, cupcakes and cookies. In the name of research, I recently had the opportunity to sample their cakes to see what vegan and gluten-free cakes taste like and to meet Kamber Sherrod, the cake decorator.

While Kamber said that their most popular flavor is the vanilla cake with almond buttercream, my favorite was the Gluten Free chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. Apparently, the vegan chocolate cake recipe was a modification of one developed during wartime, when people couldn’t afford to get eggs and milk. The cakes are denser, tasted moist and I found them to be a perfect level of sweetness. The strawberry buttercream is made of freshly pureed strawberries and is to die for! Each layer of cake is made of 3 layers of cake and 2 layers of frosting. Kamber also make sugar flowers for the cakes that are just gorgeous.

Kamber explained that they use soy products to replace the dairy ingredients like soymilk and soy-based margarine. With baking being such a scientific process, she experimented with the various ratios of ingredients until the result was a cake that taste just as good a dairy-based cake. Sticky Fingers also strives to be environmentally conscious. They use a Zipcar to deliver their cakes, minimize packaging whenever possible, and use recycled materials for packaging.
