|A big box 'o vegan sweets from Wildflour Bakery.|
|Their info on the bakery box. Very wise--it is surprising how many bakeries don't do this!|
|Peanut butter chocolate cupcake! The bomb!|
|Lime tart. Sweet and tangy with a flaky crust.|
"What are you typing so excitedly over there?" asks Mr. Scissors.
"A text to Åsa! She lives around the corner from a bakery that I have always wanted to check out, but they'll probably be closed tomorrow, so I'm going to ask her to pick me up a sample box!"
He then asks me, "What are you going to do with a big box of sweets?"
"Um, eat them!" Dur!
In the beginning of July, when the family and I headed home to see my family in Massachusetts, we took a little detour to see our friends Åsa and David who just moved to Providence. Luck has it, it turns out their apartment is right around the corner from Wildflour Vegan Bakery! Since it would be Fourth of July when we got to their house, I asked her if she could pick up a random sampler from the shop the night before. I could hardly contain my excitement when she pulled out the bakery box from her fridge!
I totally, totally had the intention of placing the sweets out at a BBQ my mom was having that day, but it never made it to the table (intentionally?). So the next day, we had a tasting party.
Even though the goods were a few days old before we tasted them, we were blown away at how awesome everything was. My mom kept asking, "So this has no butter or any eggs or any dairy?" My sister-in-law who can't eat wheat loved the gluten free coconut cookie and the kids were very into the smores cupcakes. But, for me, the star was the decadent, rich and super fudgey brownie. Seriously, perfection. You will never tasted a better vegan brownie (or regular brownie for that matter!).
So, if you are cruising up to New England on a roadtrip, take the detour and head over to Wildflour, you will not be disappointed! You may even run into Åsa, David, and their kids!
