12-year-old Henry Bowen refused to let his dairy and gluten allergy get in between his love for sweets and snacks. During Spring break last year, he was struck with an idea that would enable him to enjoy life’s tasty sweets. He began to help his mom bake, which led him to start his own bakery.
Thus, Henry’s Vegan Treats was born!
“There was something I wanted to buy,” Henry told Columbus Underground, “I don’t remember what it was. But people say you should find a job doing what you love, so I decided to make some cash baking.”
He also stated, “When you go to a vegan bakery, like Pattycake or Angry Baker, I can order almost anything on the menu. It’s a huge deal to feel welcome when you have food allergies or preferences. So, I want to be the kind of baker who makes sure there are always treats for everyone.”
Everything Henry bakes is dairy, nut, and egg-free. On his website, you will find carrot cakes with lemon buttercream frosting, mini assorted cupcakes, red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream, coffee-infused chocolate cake, red velvet minis and french baguettes and fudge brownies! Daily, he gets a lot of help from local business owners and the community.
