Mariana Cortez started baking vegan sweets back in 2009 as a way to fulfill her son's dietary restrictions. At the time, she never imagined she'd be the first person to open a vegan bakery in Miami.
Now, Bunnie Cakes is celebrating its one year anniversary -- just a few days shy of Valentine's Day. What better way to say "I love you" than with mini vegan cupcakes topped with edible hearts?
This Sunday, Cortez is offering prizes, mini cakes, and other wonderful activities. We recently spoke to Cortez, who was featured on Food Network's Cupcake Wars, about her appearance on the show, her bakery, and what guests can expect at her anniversary celebration.
