Oklahoma City – In time for Valentine’s Day, PETA has scoured the country for the Top Vegan Sweet Treats—and local bakery Quincy Bake Shop won a spot on the list for its mini-but-decadent chocolate-glazed Bundt cake.
The rich coffee- and chocolate-flavored cake comes topped with a dark chocolate glaze, and it’s perfect for one or two people. Quincy Bake Shop also offers a daily gluten-free and vegan scone made with seasonal fruit and topped with a lemon glaze. The dessert shop, located inside the Bradford House hotel, is open daily.
“This award-winning Bundt cake makes it so easy to show some love to hens and mother cows this Valentine’s Day,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “All the bakeries on PETA’s list promise fewer broken hearts by offering these animal-friendly and cholesterol-free goodies.”
Vegan sweets are sweeter to animals: In the dairy industry, calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth, and in the egg industry, parts of chicks’ beaks are cut off with a hot blade when they’re just a few days old. Each person who goes vegan also reduces their risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer; dramatically shrinks their carbon footprint; and helps prevent future outbreaks of disease—SARS, swine flu, bird flu, and COVID-19 all stemmed from confining and killing animals for food.
Other winners on PETA’s list include Dulce Vegan Bakery & Cafe in Atlanta; The Littlest Bake Shop in Kansas City, Missouri; and Sea Salt & Cinnamon in Muncie, Indiana. Each eatery will receive a framed certificate from PETA, which offers free vegan Valentine’s Day dessert recipes on its website along with a selection of sweet gifts from the PETA Shop.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
