If you ever visit the Whole Foods in Cool Springs (Franklin, Tennessee), just turn to the right as soon as you walk in, and go all the way to the back of the store, where you’ll discover their bakery department; which is where I ordered my son’s vegan birthday cake a year ago when he turned 4.
Once you are standing there in front of their bakery display, you’ll notice a few containers of chocolate coffee cake, marked “VEGAN”.
That’s because of me. You’re welcome.
I invented the vegan frosted chocolate coffee cake about a year ago.
After we had bought my son’s birthday cake last year, I then specifically looked in the Whole Foods bakery to see if they already make some kind of vegan cake on a daily basis for my wife and I to casually enjoy.
Turns out, they did: For about 2 bucks, I could get a small vegan chocolate coffee cake; which serves about 4 people.
But there was no icing.
So I asked the baker if they had any vegan icing they could put on there for me, being familiar with the fact they indeed make vegan icing because of my son’s birthday cake.
The baker went to the back, and returned with my piece of vegan chocolate coffee cake; this time with icing.
To get the icing, it does cost around a dollar more, since they charge you by weight; but it’s worth it.
I made a habit of having them frost it for me and it wasn’t before long that they just began including the icing on those cakes anyway; keeping them in stock not only for me, but for the general public.
Therefore, I take credit for making it possible for vegans in to walk in to the Cool Springs Whole Foods and pick up a vegan treat.
My name shall go down in history.
