Clara Cakes Vegan Treats Launch

A 16-year-old baker’s cupcakes, cookies, and more

clara's cakes!

Average teen obsessions: Snapchat, selfies, snapchatting selfies.

Sixteen-year-old Clara Polito, however, thinks bigger picture. Dissatisfied with the vegan sweets on the market, the business-minded baker developed her own line, aptly titled Clara Cakes.

Cupcake flavors tiramisu (espresso filling, cream cheese frosting) and Neapolitan (chocolate-filled vanilla cake with a strawberry on top) are ZOMG delicious, while the Inception cookie (chocolate chip cookie dough stuffed with an Oreo) will have you going cray cray for more. And don’t miss the whoopie pie — it’s like a Demi Lovato song in your mouth.

Order by the dozen and arrange a pickup or have them delivered.

You obvz need to try her new pizza-inspired cupcake: jalapeno and pineapple.

Hey, YOLO.
