Ruby Cakes Bakery, Willamette Valley, OR

My friend, Corey, and I arrived at a winery in McMinnville, Oregon about 30 minutes earlier than our scheduled appointment. Imagine how delighted we were to find that right next door was a vegan bakery -- Ruby Cakes! Wow - there are so many vegan bakeries in Oregon!

So we stopped by to grab a few treats. Come to find out that this bakery specializes in allergen-free baking so it is gluten-free, vegan, and nut-free. I was still pretty full from lunch so I only indulged in two tiny bite-size cupcakes.  Before I mention the food though, I have to mention the decor. It was a huge bakery with a lot of seating including an area that had rocking chairs and sofas. What a great setting!

Just be careful as you walk to the restroom as there is this creepy snowman holding cupcakes hovering over the door. Other than that, I think it is pretty safe.

I first tried the Salted Caramel Chocolate cupcake. Although I found it to be rich, the flavor wasn't all that great.  The other one I tried was the Blackberry Poppyseed. Now this one was moist and rich with a great tasting blackberry filling. I was very impressed.

Other items on the menu included bread, cookies, donuts, muffins, whoopie pies, brownies, and scones.  Corey appeared to enjoy all of his baked goods as he didn't share any with me. :(

So if you are in the area, definitely check out Ruby Cakes!
