Sweet Treats in Verona, New Jersey: Pink Frosting Bakery

Posted by on Nov 17, 2013 in Everything Else | 0 comments

Verona, New Jersey is not only home to the great vegan restaurant Positivitea, just a few doors down is the vegan Pink Frosting Bakery.  When we first stopped by, there was a back in 15 minutes sign taped to the door. We didn’t mind though, we went for a wonderful walk in the nearby park.

The bakery offers a selection of vegan cupcakes, some of the gluten-free. It also makes cakes and cupcakes to order. The baker attending to the shop seemed a little harried when we stopped in because we interrupted her in the midst of making a fresh set of cupcakes! 

We decided to pick up one of each of the three gluten-free cupcakes they had on offer that day: a chocolate cream-filled cupcake (reminiscent of Hostess cupcakes); a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting, and a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting. 

Yummy!

Yummy!

The cream-filled cupcake was good, but not my favorite. The cake itself was a bit dry and there was not quite enough cream to counter it.  The other two cupcakes were delicious however; nice and moist with amazing frosting. My favorite was the cupcake with vanilla butter cream frosting. Sweet, vanilla-y deliciousness.

I love that vegan bakeries, with gluten-free options, are starting to pop up all over the place. If you’re in the area, stop by.
