VEGAN WEDDING CAKES
PLANT BASED PERFECTION
Vegan wedding cakes. The phrase that many, many couples will never have dreamt of uttering. But vegan wedding cakes are a wonderful, contemporary, popular idea. One that more and more people are choosing. Here’s a little run-down of exactly why they’re enjoying such a “moment”.
They’re sustainable. While not wishing to lecture anyone on plant-based eating and the wonderfully good turn it does for the environment, when you cut dairy out of your wedding cake, you are joining a movement that our very planet is increasingly dependent on. A little fact for you: obtaining one litre of cow’s milk can create over three times the emissions of soya milk, and uses up much more farming land (depending on the methods used). It’s worth bearing in mind.
Your egg- or dairy-free guests will be overjoyed. How many guests have you had replying to your RSVPs with a slightly sheepish dietary need? Quite a few, would be my conservative guess. That’s because the age of eating anything and everything is far behind us and many, many humans find their stomachs just don’t work very well after ingesting lots of animal products, whether it is egg, dairy, or meat. Nonetheless, there is still a little bit of stigma around requesting a “special meal” and people often feel embarrassed about being a difficult guest. But give them a vegan wedding cake and they’ll be queuing up for seconds, embarrassment completely avoided. I also offer gluten-free, nut-free and soya-free options for those we need them.
They taste divine. There’s long been an inaccurate rumour floating around that vegan cakes don’t taste as nice as the real thing, and I often find myself on something of a one-woman mission to prove that this simply is not true. Tasting is believing.
They’re wildly popular. More couplesthan ever before are requesting vegan wedding cakes. The demand for them is so high, that a lot of my customers are not vegan, but because no one will know the difference or miss out on anything, they go for an all vegan cake. People are much more curious about what’s going into their food at the moment and I, for one, am delighted. Even if you only follow a plant-based diet some of the time, the appeal of a vegan wedding cake rings true. With flavours like chocolate and salted caramel, earl grey, pistachio and raspberry, and lemon and lime to choose from, there’s so much to like about the idea.
NO ONE EVEN KNEW IT WAS VEGAN
Everyone complimented the cake and the desserts. They had no clue and they loved them!
