I was somewhat underwhelmed by the donuts that I tasted from Little Monster Cakes. They were similar in flavor and consistency to other vegan cake donuts that I've tried (from brands like Nutrilicious in Chicago and Pepples in San Francisco) but there isn't anything that really sets them apart from the others. That said, I'm excited that there is a vegan donut company in New Haven and I think it's really neat that they have flavors like the "Homer Simpson" (a pink frosted donut with sprinkles!).

Little Monster Cakes makes stunning cupcakes and donuts. Their donuts, in particular, are marvels of baking brilliance; they're heavy, got that perfect balance between softness and chewiness, and come in a variety of great flavors (think coconut, agave, caramel and even a pink-colored Homer Simpson donut).

Their cupcakes, too, are wonderful. They're moist, fluffy and never too sugary or buttery. I've tried both their gluten-free and regular varieties and I'd take either quite happily.

Best of all, they use spelt to make their products. This gives each cupcake and donut a more substantial flavor; better yet, you don't feel quite as guilty about eating them because spelt is a wholegrain.

I can't recommend Little Monster Cakes enough. Check them out at the Upper State Street Farmers Market on Saturdays or get their stuff at Fuel Coffee Shop, both in New Haven.
