Jon Stewart Sends The View Vegan Cakes

Co-host Sunny Hostin literally ate her negative words about vegan cake after sampling baked goods from Vegan Treats.

The hosts of The View were treated to vegan cake last week courtesy of comedian Jon Stewart and his vegan wife Tracey. The Stewarts sent a variety of vegan cakes provided by Pennsylvania-based bakery Vegan Treats to prove to co-host Sunny Hostin that vegan baked goods are tasty. The surprise delivery was sparked by a recent show that featured actor Craig Robinson—known for his role as Darryl Philbin on The Office—who told Hostin he was in search of a good vegan cake for his upcoming birthday. “I just said, 'Vegan birthday cakes probably don’t taste good,'” Hostin recounted, before admitting that she was wrong. “I mean, has anybody had a kale cake that’s delicious? No! So, I guess Jon Stewart and his wife heard about this and sent us a bunch of vegan cakes that apparently are tasty.” The cakes were a big hit with the rest of the co-hosts, with Whoopi Goldberg stating that there are “all kinds of vegan bakeries in Chelsea. They’re all over [New York City].” The Stewarts are animal-rights activists and own the newest branch of rescue organization Farm Sanctuary in New Jersey.
