"Sweet Avenger" on Animal Planet is a reality docu-series featuring one woman's mission to save animals one cupcake at a time.

Not a single egg or stick of butter has ever been used by Vegan Treats owner, Danielle Konya. Since founding the vegan bakery in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 1995, Danielle has been on a mission to craft delicious and compassionate vegan desserts that not only compete with, but outright crush her non-vegan counterparts. Danielle's dream started out in her small apartment with the help of her mom; and now, almost sixteen years, tens of thousands of cakes and countless culinary awards later, Danielle finds herself running a bakery that is bursting at the seams.

The challenges are many—from fulfilling custom orders for more than 100 pastry shop clients in Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C.; to struggling to deliver, one-of- a-kind wedding cakes for a backlog of brides; to catering an endless calendar of special events, from rock concerts to private parties to celebrity-filled, black-tie animal rights benefits; to perhaps the biggest hurdle—getting people to go outside of their comfort zones to try these decadent, vegan confections. In the midst of working countless hours so her business thrives, Danielle must also find time for her most important role: mother to adopted daughter, Britney.

"Sweet Avenger" charts all of the triumphs and failures, both personal and professional, that Danielle and her supporting cast experience on a daily basis in the bakeshop that's brought them all together with the goal to get as many people eating vegan as possible, one cake at a time.

"Sweet Avenger" is produced by Optomen Productions for Animal Planet. Monica Ramone, Dominic Stobart and Nicola Moody are executive producers for Optomen Productions. Melinda Toporoff is executive producer for Animal Planet. Vice president of development is Charlie Foley.
