This Is The Exact Vegan Cake Heather Dubrow Wants for Her 50th Birthday

The Dubrow Diet co-author is craving this crumb-topped treat. 

By Jenny Berg

Heather Dubrow has a lot to celebrate these days. Not only is The Dubrow Diet (the book she co-authored with husband Terry) selling like gangbusters, but The Real Housewives of Orange County alum will be celebrating her 50th birthday in January. However, with a big birthday comes a big decision. And we're talking, of course, about cake selection. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

Heather is a proven master when it comes to wrangling on-point birthday cakes for her loved ones. There was the time she served the clean-eating Tamra Judge a cake that looked like actual veggies. Then, for her daughter Katarina's 12th birthday, Heather got a cake that could have come straight from the Emerald City. 

Now that it's Heather's own special day, what kind of cake is she in the market for? Here's a hint: It should have no butter or eggs. When dishing with The Feast recently, the soon-to-be birthday girl had this to say:

"Last year was actually one of my favorite birthdays ever ... We had champagne and caviar and a beautiful meal and then this Erin McKenna Coffee Cake. She has this vegan bakery and I can't have dairy, so it's the best coffee cake." The gluten-free, dairy-free cake is said to have a light, moist texture and it's topped with sweet, dense crumbs. The entire cake is also drizzled in a delightfully gooey glaze.


Want in? The bakery has locations in Los Angeles and New York, and you can grab the treat there. But if you're not in either area, there's hope yet: Erin McKenna now ships its cakes nationally, and you can order them online. Why not treat yourself in Heather's honor?
