Angela Simmons is gushing about her new business venture Angela’s Cakes. Speaking with Big Tigger on the Big Tigger Morning Show, the 35-year-old entrepreneur said she became inspired to create her brand of vegan funnel cake mix after realizing there’s no place where people can purchase a vegan funnel cake.
“There is no vegan funnel cake. Where? Tell me where you can get a vegan funnel cake?” she said on the show.
Simmons, who shared that she has been vegan for 15 years, said the healthy treat will be available at multiple Sugar Factory locations.
“I’ve had a lot of people who are not vegan try it,” she said. “It’s really good and I’m not just saying it ‘cuz it’s mine, I want you to go try it yourself.”
Simmons is also selling her funnel cake mix online at eatangelascakes.com. Customers can buy Angela’s Cakes Dry Mix for $12.99 or the much-larger option, Angela’s Cakes Food Service Box, for $95. The website describes Simmons as a “designer, entrepreneur, vegan and fitness enthusiast.”
Simmons, according to the website, “wanted to create a unique experience for vegans with junk food cravings, matched with various over-the-top toppings.”
“Angela’s Cakes is a fun childhood nostalgic breakfast staple and dessert that reimagines Simmons’ love of pastries,” the site states, adding that the product “is operated as a partner through Slutty Vegan and Pinky Cole.”
Simmons also sells aprons that are mostly colored in pink and decorated with her brand name and logo. In her interview on the Big Tigger Morning Show, Simmons also talked about her relationship with rapper Yo Gotti.
“I just feel like he’s one of my biggest inspirations, and we just get each other,” she said. “He’s a hustler. I love watching him. He inspires me to do better, be better. I’m really happy with him. I think he’s a great person. Not think…I know.”
The former reality star was asked if there are any wedding plans in the works.
“I’m in a really good moment, and I’m happy,” she said. “So when it happens, it’ll happen. But right now, it’s cool, I’m in a great space.”
