Cakes don't traditionally align with a vegan diet but that was then and this is now. More and more bakeries are starting to create vegan friendly cakes that are so good, you won't believe they are free from animal products.
One such cake maker is Flavour Town. This small but multi award winning bakery outlet based in London is famous for making the most amazing cakes for everyone, including vegans and those on a gluten-free diet too.
They hand bake a huge range of cupcakes, cakes and brownies every morning using the finest ingredients and hand deliver across London in one of their cute little branded vans.
I could go on for days about the massive range of stunning, jaw-dropping cakes these guys make but this post is about their vegan cakes. You won't be able to tell the difference between the vegan options and the regular versions.
The particular cake we're going on about here is the vegan & free from gluten death by chocolate cupcake, described as a moist Valrhona chocolate sponge topped with a silky swirl of Belgian chocolate buttercream, and to finish off the scrumptious look, a dusting of gold glitter and a handmade mini Belgian chocolate bar - Amazing!
Flavour Town Fulham branch. 1 of 2 bakery shops they operate in London. For the sake of the rest of the country, we hope they branch out outside London.
To be honest, the description sounds amazing but doesn't even do the taste justice. They need to be tried to be believed.
It's important to note that although these cupcakes are vegan and made with all gluten free ingredients, they are made in a kitchen that handles dairy and gluten, so if you have an allergy to wheat products, it's wise to bear that in mind.
Half a dozen of these gorgeous little chocolatey treats will set you back £22.50 (£3.75 each). Not cheap but not overley pricy either. They are so rich that just one of these cupcakes will touch all the sides of your tummy with a layer of yummy.
Flavour Town Bakery Locations
At the moment there are only two London locations, Fulham and Richmond, but yes they do deliver to a substantial number of London locations.
What makes Flavour Town cakes so good?
Quite simply, they use the vest best ingredients money can buy. From the freshly delivered organic free range eggs, to the artisanal butter made in France's Charentes region, and the finest chocolates and cocoa powder from France and Belgium.
The icing on the cake, so to speak is every cupcake is handmade by some of the finest bakers and decorators London has to offer.
Which other vegan cakes do they have?
Other vegan cakes they have on offer include Biscoff sundae cake, Cookies & Cream Cake, Rainbow Birthday Cake, Chocolate Birthday Cake, Red Velvet Cake, Vanilla Birthday Cake, Vanilla, Raspberry & Coconut cake.
