The Vegan Divas themselves, partners Helene Safdie and Fernanda Capobianco at last night's opening night party for their brand-new Upper East Side flagship store and bakery (1437 First Avenue at 75th Street, NYC).
Cholesterol and lactose-free, all treats are devoid of animal products (including dairy, butter, cream, or eggs) — but rich in fiber and protein. Vegan Divas created a line of vegan, animal-free, low-calorie, organic, and kosher baked goods and desserts, and they taste incredible! No joke, I don't know how they do it, but everything is so rich and delicious and, well, decadent. It seems impossible they are healthy, too.
The mini chocolate cupcakes (with dark chocolate frosting) were delicious, and very rich. I found I was full after eating two. Too full to try the famous donuts, so I had to take some home with me in one of the sexy purple carry-home boxes.
Great party, beautiful people, and amazing vegan desserts.
