Tasty Treats Review: Sweet Avenue Bake Shop

20 Oct

Sweet Avenue Bake Shop Located In Rutherford NJ. If You Are Not Close Have No Fear They Ship Throughout The Country.

Sweet Avenue Bake Shop had been on my radar for the past year, but it kept slipping  my mind. It is only like 9 miles from my house in the cute little town of Rutherford, NJ. You would never know this is a vegan bakery since it does not say it anywhere (which is super cool because the word ‘vegan’ tends to scare people away, lol). I was very excited for what was in store for me as I had never had a vegan cupcake before and I knew this was their specialty. I am a Red Velvet with Cream Cheese icing kind of gal and did not expect what Sweet Ave had in store for me. WOW.

The bakery is tiny. Its literally a ‘little bakery’ which I adore since I am an Italian gal from Jersey. This means I have spent A LOT of time in bakeries by default 😉 Honestly, the real bakery is a dying breed, so to see this place looking like a page from my past made me feel happy and comfortable. No need for frills when you can bake like they can anyways. There were many different flavors of cupcakes like Oreo, Apple Spice, Chocolate Coconut, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry. I mean any kind of cupcake you could want was right there in vegan form. It was so beautiful I just stood there and stared for a few minutes taking it all in. Every cup cake was like a work of art, perfect and delicious looking. They were priced from $3.00-$3.50 each which is very fair for vegan cupcakes.

After some deliberation I went with the Red Velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing. And my boyfriend went with the Oreo cupcake which was a special. He got coffee and I got hot chocolate and we took a seat not ready for what we were about to discover. As I unwrapped the cupcake I noticed right away how fluffy and moist the cake was. It may have been the most moist cupcake I have ever had. It was amazing. The icing to cake ratio was perfect. It was not drowning in icing, just complementing the cake perfectly. The taste was very natural, which shocked me. I honestly expected something more artificial tasting, but this was not the case at all. At times I could taste hints of soy which I do not mind at all, but over all it was dead on for a Red Velvet cupcake. Absolutely amazing. My boyfriends Oreo cupcake was UNREAL. It was a chocolate cupcake topped with cookies and cream icing and a half of an Oreo cookie. Little did we know it was also full of the same delicious cookies and cream icing. That cupcake was one of the most amazing things I have ever had in my life. He was also completely blown away by it. I am salivating just thinking about that place 😉

The hot chocolate I got was great… so chocolaty with the prefect amount of cinnamon. I loved this since I LOVE my hot chocolate with cinnamon. Its such a great contrast of flavor. They  serve very good coffee too, and also have tea, water and ORIGINAL FORMULA COCA COLA. This is my house is known as Mexican Coke since we realized on one of our many trips to Mexico that they never changed their formula to high fructose corn syrup like they did here. Mexican Coca Cola is the best, and even comes in the old style glass bottle. We did not get to try any of their cookies this time, but we will next time. They also carry a line of  vegan candy bars by Go Max Go, so we picked up a Twilight bar (aka a vegan Milky Way) for good measure.

All I can say is that I will be back at Sweet Avenue Bake Shop within the next couple of weeks, and will be making it a regular weekend stop of mine. It is too good to pass by, and when I want baked goods what better way to have them then vegan?
