Cake Thieves: Stealing Your Heart One Bite at a Time

As a person who prides herself on knowing the pulse of the local vegan community, I was absolutely shocked to discover that Cake Thieves existed...in San Antonio, TX.  Several months ago, a friend sent me a link to a Facebook ad showcasing droolworthy vegan donuts.  My initial reaction was to book a ticket and fly to LA or NYC or Europe in order to get my grubby little hands on such majestic beauties.  However, the video ended with a familiar location...my own backyard!

Naturally, I did what any red-blooded American would do: I ordered one of every flavor and told my friends we were having a tasting party. We each tried a bit of every flavor over the course of three hours. The verdict? Guilty of deliciousness. The best thing about this was that we all came to separate conclusions. My friend liked the cookie dough the best. I was partial to lemon pistachio. Ryan was feeling cinnamon sugar.

The consensus for most and least favorite was pretty much unanimous. Salted chocolate was like a little bite of heaven! Dirty chai was not our favorite. Overall, it was a delightful donut experience worthy of the sugar rush.

If you have not experienced Cake Thieves, please RUN to give them your money! Their donuts can be found at the following places: Mila Coffee, White Elephant, Cafè AztecaBerry to Bean, and Larder. Ooh! And exciting news: just yesterday it was announced that Cake Thieves is now available at Bee's Neez Cones and Coffee! And, as always, you can find them handing out goodies every month at the Vegan Stop Shop. Look for the epic line, and you'll know you've found your happy place.
