The Rise of The Vegan Cake!
It feels like a leap forward is happening at the moment with vegan food becoming more easily available and part of the mainstream. There's still a long way to go until vegan options are as easily available as vegetarian but it feels like it's getting closer. There was an excellent article this week in the Irish Independent by journalist Aoife Barry who is also writer of the Adventures in Veg blog and one of the bakers featured is Glauce from the blog All About (Vegan) Food!
Over in Manchester we had our second Cake Liberation Front meet up. The first was 2 months ago where we had 25 people. This time we had 50! Ages ranged from 2 weeks to 74 and we had vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters all enjoying the all you can eat cake buffet!
The standard of baked goods was fantastic, people are really raising the bar and I'm looking forward to the next meet up on March 20 already!
We've now got a Flickr group set up and you can see more photos from both this, the November meeting and the Bed-In event we did at the Bluecoat Gallery where had breakfast in bed giving away vegan muffins as part of a series of events celebrating John Lennon's 70th birthday by recreating the famous Bed-Ins that John and Yoko did in the 1960s.
