Ara's Petite Treats started as a tiny from-home company in Puerto Rico just over a year ago. Coming from an area where both vegan and gluten free goods are almost unheard of and impossible to find, we began experimenting until we found the perfect combination: delicious, healthy, moist cupcakes that catered to both my animal friendly lifestyle and my family's Celiac tendencies. Over time we have expanded our line to include several sugar free cupcakes also, as well as a variety of cookies, brownies and other baked treats. Our menu is ever expanding and has been modified to cater to people with dairy, gluten and casein allergies, among others! (A few of our items contain gluten though remain vegan. These are baked separately from the gluten free goods and are clearly marked on our menus.) And of course, ALL of our goods are all-natural with mainly organic, local ingredients (as possible)!
Our cupcakes are truly extraordinary, with most of my clients neither vegan nor gluten intolerant, purely fans of our unique flavor combinations! We have been able to give kids with allergies their first chocolate birthday cake taste EVER and have won over even the pickiest eaters of all ages!
Now expanding and moving our business to Austin, TX we are looking to fund our need to rent a commercial kitchen space, get all of our health licenses and most importantly begin applying for booths at several farmer’s markets and related food events in town in order to promote our business with direct customer interaction and tastings! Austin is a very vegan-friendly town, yet vegan AND gluten free goods are often hard to find or simply don’t compare to regular cakes in taste and quality. The only way to grow our business is to have DIRECT contact with consumers and this is why we need YOUR help! We are confident that once people have a bite, they will be hooked for life!
Our goal is not only to give people with dietary restrictions options that will be just as good if not better tasting than regular baked goods, but to promote a healthier, natural lifestyle for EVERYONE. There is no need to sacrifice deliciousness in order to be healthy! Coming from a family history of obesity, diabetes and gluten intolerance that affects even children, we hope to give back to the community by promoting a lifestyle low in processed fats and sugars and high in fun, concious living!
