philly cupcakes

Red velvet, vegan cupcake at Philly Cupcake

Craving an elegant, moist vegan cupper but don't feel like baking? Check out Philly Cupcake. Although they are not a vegan bakery, I applaud them for offering delectable vegan options. All cupcakes are displayed in an ornate, semi-Baroque glass case, which visually elevates the baked goods to precious museum object status. At $4 a pop, they are definitely a splurge. But they're worth the money; the red velvet cupcake was sublime: moist, hedonistically creamy frosting and as fresh as they come. Selections change daily.

I haven't yet made it to all-vegan, gluten-free Sweet Freedom, but from what the Philly vegan cognoscenti are saying, it's da bomb.

My gripe with Sweet Freedom is that the desserts they serve lack the polish and presentation that a retail bakery should have. I don't want to pay for a product that looks on par with what I'd put together for myself at home. Hopefully they improve!

I'd feel guilty eating a cupcake that looked so good. Where do you start? It looks fantastic.

The store itself is adorable. I love the concept of putting the cupcakes behind a cupboard. The cupcakes themselves are delicious, always moist.
