Baker Stephanie Jarvis has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to make her dream of opening a vegan bakery become a sweet reality. If the seven-year vegan reaches her $5,000 goal, Jarvis will open Vegan Crumbs, a cruelty-free bakery, in Orlando, Fla., and sell her cakes and cupcakes at farmers’ markets. In addition to ditching dairy, she also refuses to use trans-fats, hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial colorings and flavorings in her baked goods. “As a vegan, I believe that tasty desserts can be made without the use of animal products,” Jarvis says on her Kickstarter page. “My goal is to make vegan treats that will fool even non-vegans into believing they’re the real thing.”
