At the the pop-up bakery Sweet Nebula, you’ll find improbably gorgeous fruit tarts topped with gilded blueberries and hot pink flower petals, a flash of gold leaf-streakedstrawberries mounted on a swirling spiral of elegant tres leches cake, and cookies, at once rustic and refined, studded with chocolate chips and finished with a flaky pinch of salt.
These delectable treats are the handiwork of Art Reyes, the creative force behind bakery. And here’s the kicker: they’re all vegan. Not a bit of butter or egg is to be found in these remarkable sweets.
Reyes honed his skills during a four-year tenure at San Antonio’s Bakery Lorraine, and brings the precise attention to detail and quality control he learned there to his own venture.
Sweet Nebula doesn’t have a storefront, but you can find Reyes (and his desserts) at area pop-up events, including the monthly and mobile Vegan Stop Shop market, which features numerous vegan cosmetics, crafts and food vendors.
Vegan Stop Shop’s next scheduled event will be from noon to 3 p.m. June 22 at The Cherrity Bar, located at 302 Montana St. across Cherry Street from the Alamodome. For his other appearances, follow Reyes online at Facebook: @sweetnebula .
