Clara Polito

Clara's Cakes is the brain child of Clara Polito. After becoming vegan in 2009 at age 12, Clara realized how hard it was to find fabulous tasting vegan baked goods. After many months of research and kitchen experiments she took it upon herself to create her own delicious vegan delights. The end result was not only rad tasting yummies, but finding her calling as a baker of goodness.

Clara's Cakes uses no animal ingredients of any kind - no dairy products, no eggs, no honey - and uses only the best vegan ingredients available.
