Vegan Villain..."Why a villain?" In short, the bakery was named for my son, Dylan "the Villain."
I have always had a few food allergies, but a few years ago we learned that Dylan had some as well. Most kids' birthday parties have cake which included his two allergies-strawberries and milk. Our vegan cooking journey began as a project to allow Dylan the opportunity to still enjoy cake. I soon discovered that baking vegan also had a positive effect on my health, and was easier for me to digest.
As time went on, I had friends who started requesting other specially made treats, like gluten-free and nut-free.
I combined my love of science with my passion for helping others (animals and those with food allergies) to create Vegan Villain's Sinful Sweets. Our palate is akin to granny's home baking but without the animal ingredients. We take pride in our work, spending hours coming up with delicious recipes and sourcing high-quality ingredients. Most of our goodies can be made gluten-free and we never add any nuts (except coconut) unless there is a special request.
Our Bakery opened in 2018 for special events, fairs, farmer's markets, and special orders. For 2019, we will be at the Gresham Farmer's Market, Saturdays
8:30am-2pm May through October. You can also find us at Q Center on 2nd Saturdays every month, and some other special events...stay tuned!
Our listed address is at our commercial kitchen, Portland Mercado. We do not have a brick-and-mortar yet, so make sure to stop by one of our events or call/email for special orders!
