Respond to Review of Raphsodic Bakery
by The Wandering Vegan
Review: I have egg, dairy, and gluten allergies. Vegan desserts are easier to find now, but finding gluten-free and vegan is difficult. Vegan, gluten-free and delicious is a rare find indeed. But Rhapsodic has a full selection of gluten-free cupcakes that were every bit as moist and rich as traditional cupcakes (from what I remember of them). The desserts are made with blue agave nectar, which, while still being sugar, is certainly more healthful than refined sugars. I tried the Chai, Chocolate, and Red Velvet cupcakes. All three were yummy and delicious, but Chai was the best. It had a gingerbread taste to it. I brought along friends who eat egg and dairy and they found the cupcakes and cheesecakes to be every bit as good as the non-vegan versions, if not better. I took a bite of my boyfriend's chocolate cheesecake even though I knew it had some gluten in it. That's how seductive the sweets are. The taste was unlike anything I've tasted before, which is a testament to the chef's creativity. I don't think vegan foods should necessarily strive to imitate non-vegan foods, but be their own unique creation. I highly recommend this place.
