Does your bakery make dairy-free, egg-free, plant-based, vegan cakes?

We make incredible chocolate fudge vegan cakes that are plant-based, dairy-free and egg-free. We bet your guests won’t know the difference. They will not know this cake does not contain eggs, milk or butter! Our vegan chocolate fudge cake is made with premium Dutch cocoa for a rich dark chocolate cake. It’s made with layers of our silky smooth housemade secret recipe fudge frosting. This cake is good! It’s not made with anything weird like chickpeas or avocados. That doesn’t belong in cake…This cake does not taste like vegetables like some other vegan cakes we've tried. Though we don't specialize in making vegan cakes, we promised ourselves that we would only bake and sell a vegan cake that we would be proud to serve to weary non-vegan guests! Also, try our chocolate fudge brownies that are also AMAZING.  We like to trick our non-vegan friends with them. And we must say, everyone, asks for more. It does not contain nuts.
