Whether it’s a children’s birthday party, a wedding, or just a standard Tuesday night, you can’t go wrong with a cupcake (or several). These baked sweet treats are nostalgic, delicious, and fun to eat, especially when they’re covered in creamy frosting. Here’s where you can get the best vegan-friendly cupcakes.
What’s in a vegan cupcake?
Like regular cakes, cupcakes usually contain a few basic ingredients: butter, sugar, flour and eggs. But while butter and eggs aren’t vegan, it is possible to find animal-free alternatives. Aquafaba is a great alternative to eggs. There are also many vegan butter alternatives available. Find out more about vegan baking in our guide.
But if you don’t want to bake from home, why not let the experts work out all of the ingredients for you? Below, we’ve compiled some of the best places to find tasty, indulgent cupcakes across the US. This list is not exhaustive. We also recommend supporting local businesses near you that offer vegan baked goods—you never know, you might find a new favorite sweet treat.
