A former vegan (I missed cheese, people; don’t judge me), I would have died for a vegan bakery like Sticky Fingers in my old South Florida locale. Instead, I baked my way through Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. (It’s a real book, I swear.)
Point being, I know first-hand the challenges of making a light-and-fluffy cupcake with flavorful frosting that’s egg-and-dairy-free. It’s a challenge, to say the least. Sticky Fingers Bakery in Columbia Heights, with its delicious cakes and cupcakes, makes it look like a breeze.
The traditional vanilla was sweet – but not too sweet – and moist, with very fluffy frosting. In my other experiences at Sticky Fingers, I’ve sampled chocolate and chocolate-peanut butter, which were also lovely.
Though I’m not a vegan any longer (I consider myself a pescetarian), I believe that non-vegans and non-vegetarians can (and should) go dairy or meat-free on occasion to help improve their health and reduce their environmental impact.
If you’d like to check out some Vegan treats or are in Columbia Heights, stop by Sticky Fingers, you won’t be disappointed. Oh, and PS, they also have a brunch! Weekends until 2:30, choice of pancakes, French toast, or biscuits ‘n gravy served with roasted potato home fries and hearty tofu scramble for $10. Not bad!
Great cupcakes that are better for you, and better for the environment.
