Pastry chefs across Vancouver are getting their Pride Week on by pulling out the rainbow dye. But they’re also giving back. Pick one of these sweet treats during Pride Week (July 29-Aug. 4) and part of the proceeds will be donated to an LGBTQ-related charity.
Giovane Café + Eatery’s rainbow-coloured sugar buns return. Stuffed to the max with silky, vanilla cream, the crispy-on-the-outside pastry bursts at the seams. One dollar from every bun sold is donated to Dr. Peter Aids Foundation that provides compassionate care to those living with HIV. At The Teahouse in Stanley Park, pastry chef Noel Singh has created a “Fruit Loop” buttercream layer cake with two dollars for every cake sold donated to Rainbow Refugee. This Lower Mainland organization assists new refugees who are LGBTQ or living with HIV as they settle in Canada. Temper Chocolate and Pastry turns up the tempo with their rainbow-painted chocolate domes flavored in cocktail themes—representing each of the six colors of the Pride flag. A dollar from each box sold will be donated to Dr. Peter Aids Foundation.
