7 mouth-watering vegan cakes you can buy at the grocery store

There are countless ways to find a vegan cake – homemade, semi-homemade (box mix), local vegan bakeries, shipped cakes – but the fastest way to get a cake on your table is to buy one at the grocery store. You’re already here for the tofu and kale, so might as well buy an impulse cake. Different supermarkets carry different brands, but you can expect to find at least one of these takeout desserts at a grocer near you. Candles are optional.
