1000 Vegan Cupcakes for Charity: Farm to Cupcake


On April 6, “Farm to Cupcake” will bring together eleven local bakers to compete and bake 1000 vegan cupcakes, all to benefit four different Sacramento-area charities. Presented by Sacramento Vegan Challenge and hosted by Chef Clay Purcell of Tower Bridge Bistro, Farm to Cupcake will challenge these renowned vegan bakers to bring their best flavors to be put on display and judged by special guest judge Colleen Holland of Veg News Magazine, and three cupcake aficionados: Gina Garcia of Yoga Across America, Jennifer Fearing of the Human Society of the U.S., and Tina Macuha of Good Day Sacramento.

The bakeries and bakers participating are:
• Tower Bridge Bistro: Chef Clay Purcell
 Capitol Garage: Chef Raphael Kendall
• Sun Flour Bakery: Rey Ortega
• Pushkin’s Bakery (Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free)
• Sassy Sweets by Monique
• Dalila’s Cupcakery
• Angelfood Vegan Treats
• Sweet Stuff Cakery
• 24K Chocolate Café: Amberlee Wensmenn
• The Healthy Family Diet: Emily Webber
• Sugar Plum Vegan Bakery & Catering: Melissa Sugar

The competition will be taking place at the Embassy Suites Hotel on Capitol Mall from 2-5 p.m. Guests are welcome to also purchase cupcakes to take home (*Cash-and-carry ) and musician Kyle Vincent will be performing live at the event. There is no cost of admission, but the charities benefit from the cupcake sales.

One competitor to watch out for is definitely Pushkin’s Bakery. The husband-wife duo behind this newly opened gluten-free and dairy-free bakery have lately received rave reviews and even reported having sold out of everything in their bakery on Thursday of last week! Basically, these judges are the luckiest of all taste testers in Sacramento.  

As if being in the same room with one thousand cupcakes isn’t enough, attendees can also enter to win door prizes. And, to add to the sweetness, this event will benefit Animal Place in Grass Valley, Animal Place Veganic Farm & CSA Program, A Well-Fed World, and St. John’s Shelter for Women and Children. Stop by, appreciate these vegan bakers, and let us know who you think put up the best cupcake!
