A new Kickstarter fundraiser aims to finance the expansion of catering company Ara’s Petite Treats into a full-fledged bakery. Ara’s Petite Treats bakes vegan cupcakes, cakes, brownies, cookies, and more, while being sensitive to those with gluten and soy allergies. Founder Ara Irigoyen began the venture in Puerto Rico but has since moved to Austin and developed menu items like chocolate pumpkin pie cupcakes, double chocolate brownies, and oatmeal coconut cookies. If the project’s $5,000 goal is reached, the business will rent a commercial kitchen space, obtain necessary licenses, and apply for booths at farmers’ markets.
