Every vegan east of Portland has heard about Bunnie Cakes' impossibly moist cupcake creations. It's this flair for cruelty-free cooking that earned owner Mariana Cortez a spot on Food Network's Cupcake Wars.

But now the cozy bakery is offering something new: to-go treats in adorable mini-mason jars, ranging from cacao chia pudding to passion fruit cheesecake to sin tres leches. And as expected, they're decadently delicious -- with Cortez's famous healthy twist.

Executive pastry chef Jordi Panisello takes us inside Miami's own Wonkaville.
A lot has changed at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach since its opening in 1954. The hotel has undergone renovations and upgrades, but some things remain constant: the resort has always been the most lavish playground on Miami's famed stretch of beach and the resort has always had a coffee and patisserie shop for its guests.

Chez Bon Bon, which opened about a month ago in the former Solo space, continues this tradition of offering a sweet treat and a caffeinated pick-me-up to hotel guests and locals alike.

Cucumber and chili, and corn paletas.
In a low-slug strip mall near Krome Avenue in Homestead, the steel-and-glass front door of La Michoacana Paletería y Nevería swings open into an orange-and-gray-tiled shop. A half-dozen flat-screen TV sets blare Spanish-language news and telenovelas as you make your way to a long display case holding row after row of ice pops and cream bars. The $2 frozen treats (cash only) come in a rainbow of flavors, such as blended mamey, sweet tomato salsa, or rompope -- a popular Mexican drink similar to eggnog with ground almonds instead of booze.

It's hard enough to find vegan ice cream (outside of your grocer's freezer, that is). But vegan gelato? Forget it. Those who opt out of dairy don't have a lot of options when it comes to this creamy Italian treat.

But Coconut Grove's newest sweet spot, Bianco Gelato, is serving up handmade flavors made with almond milk and other all-natural ingredients. So vegans can go nuts with pistachio, pineapple and peppermint, strawberry, raspberry and pomegranate, and more.

Meet your new favorite sweet treat.

Let's start with the basics: macarons and macaroons are not the same thing. So dispel any image in your head of coconutty cake balls (macaroons) and instead, visit Janette & Co for a taste of France's beloved sweet treat (macarons).

Quentin and Agnes Garrigou opened their first shop in South Miami nearly two years ago. Last week, they debuted another outpost on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Together, the pair is educating neighborhood folks on the art of French pastry and preserving their sugar high with delicious macarons of all flavors.

Ten Best Key Lime Pies in the Florida Keys

A slice of heaven.
The key to happiness might be as simple as a slice of key lime pie. But pairing that sweet treat with a trip to the Keys is the proverbial cherry on top. The topping is actually a bit debated: whipped cream or meringue? As is the crust: graham cracker or pastry? Oh, and the color: yellow for Keys denizens, neon green for nonislanders.

Because key lime pie originated in the Keys -- although key limes no longer grow there (thanks, hurricanes!) -- nearly every eatery, shack, and shop at seemingly every mile marker claims to sell "the best" and "the original." Let's not get tangled in that web of origin. Instead, here's a simple countdown our ten favorite slices. Pucker up!

The Ménage à Trois Raw Vegan Doughnuts from Jugofresh Will Leave You Stuffed

The threesome.
There's a certain person (El Jefe) who likes to visit local doughnut shops whenever he travels to different cities. Unfortunately, in Miami you have to leave the city and head to Mojo in Pembroke Pines for that special round sweetness with a hole in the middle.

It's unclear why this Magic City is lacking a special doughnut, but surely this healthful population is partially responsible. Perhaps that is why the juice masters at Jugofresh brought us raw, vegan donuts in a three-pack to satisfy our pie doughnut holes.

Bianco Gelato -- organic, authentic gelato comes to Coconut Grove.
Summer in Miami means long sun-scorching days and humid nights. Most of us hibernate in our air conditioned dens, coming out to brave the elements only for something essential -- like freshly made, authentic Italian gelato made with organic ingredients.

Bianco Gelato, opening today in Coconut Grove, is providing a delicious and healthful way to cool off.
