Vegan Baked Goods in Nashville!

Vegan Baked Goods in Nashville!

Posted on 19. Nov, 2009 by Yvonne Smith in Blog, Nashville

I still can’t believe that we can’t buy vegan cupcakes at Whole Foods here in Nashville. They keep saying they’re going to outsource, but why not make them in-house? The cupcakes I make from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World are better than any cupcake I’ve ever had, so their constant excuses fall on deaf ears with me.  Vegan cupcakes rule and there is definitely a market for them here!

Enter Fiddle Cakes on 8th Ave South.  I called the other day to find out about their vegan offerings, then realizing they would be closing in just a bit, I hopped in the car and drove straight there.   I walked up to the counter and asked for one of everything that was vegan.  I purchashed an almond shortbread cookie, a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie and a banana split cupcake.  Turns out the woman who helped me is also vegan so I gave her my card and we chatted a bit.

I brought my tasty treats home and it was all I could do to wait to take photos before I dove in.  The almond shortbread cookie tasted just like what you’d expect.  It was crispy and had a nice almondy, buttery flavor.  (People often ask me how it’s possible for shortbread to be vegan, but did you know that Lorna Doone shortbread cookies are vegan?  Not healthy by any means, but still vegan.)

Next, I tried the pumpkin chocolate chip cookie.  It was pretty good, but a little salty and I would have liked a little more pumpkin spice flavor.  The banana split cupcake didn’t have the best consistency compared to some of the vegan cupcakes I’ve had, but the flavors were great.  The cake tasted like real banana and had little chunks of pineapple and chocolate chips and it had walnuts and a maraschino cherry on top.  The icing was very sugary, but was also quite fresh and yummy.  Way better than the stuff you’d get on most bakery cupcakes.

Even with my little criticisms, I enjoyed everything and ate all three items in one sitting, ended up with a ridiculous sugar high, then crashed hard.  I don’t recommend trying that.  I know better, but it was so hard to resist!

Fiddle Cakes also serves lunch (soups, salads and sandwiches) and they can make their vegetarian menu items vegan.  Their sandwich bread is vegan and comes from a bakery in Clarksville and they have Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet cheese.  All their recipes are their own and they use sweeteners like organic evaporated cane juice, molasses and agave nectar, plus they have gluten-free items as well.  They also do catering and special orders.  Yay!

Nashvillians, let’s support Fiddle Cakes and show this city and its restaurants, bakeries, etc. that we can keep vegan-friendly businesses alive and thriving.

    I am SO JEALOUS that you got a cupcake! They didn’t have any when I was there. I had the same cookie as you and I loved it when I had it. You can see my review here: http://nashvegan.wordpress.com/2009/10/30/fiddlecakes/

    And you better believe I’ll be back to FiddleCakes now that they have vegan cupcakes. Holler!

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
