Who doesn’t love a good cinnamon roll?
At Fairy Cakes (3586 Fraser Street) in East Vancouver, Cera Rivers bakes rolls in a variety of flavours. But they’ve all got the ooey-gooey goodness of your favourite cinnamon buns.
Last weekend, we picked up a blueberry roll ($3.75) at the vegan and nut-free cupcake shop’s first birthday party. It was moist, vanilla-flavoured, and satisfyingly sweet.
We also bought a slice of lemon cheesecake ($3.95) and a gluten-free vanilla cupcake with blackberry cheesecake icing ($3.75). Both were mmm.
Fairy Cakes started up in March 2012. The shop is just a few doors down the block from Nice Shoes (3568 Fraser Street), the city’s only vegan footwear store. It’s open every day except Tuesday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
