Hands up who loves cake. I do! But if you had offered me vegan cake six years ago, I would have thought you were crazy.
How wrong I was. Since we’ve been dealing with milk and egg allergies, I’ve been amazed a how great vegan cakes can be and how most people who are used to eating ‘normal’ cake simply don’t notice there is any difference. So whether you trying out veganuary, have made a lifetsyle change or are dealing with allergies, here are 10 cakes which are so good you you wouldn’t know they were vegan:
