Dairy Free Cakes for all Occasions

Celebrate a special even with a delicious dairy free cake!

Cake for everyone! That would be our campaign slogan if we were running for a government position. It surprising sometimes how hard it can be to find a cake to suit certain dietary requirements. Which is very frustrating when you have special events coming up. Although free from options are becoming increasingly available at supermarkets, they still leave a lot of be desired.

Most of the time free from supermarket cakes are dry and crumbly, and not often an overly pleasant eating experience. Well, at least this is what we found when we started venturing into dairy free cakes. It can be tricky to get the right balance of dairy free ingredients to create a delicious dairy free cake, and we spent a long time working on our recipes to get them right.

Since we launched our dairy free cake range, we’ve had a lot of great feedback from our customers, who often say that they can’t tell the difference between our dairy free cakes and our standard cakes, because they taste that good! If you’ve been looking for a dairy free cake for a special occasion visit – we have a great range of dairy free cakes that are suitable for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and more.


Dairy Free Cakes

Here are a few flavours too choose from in our dairy free cakes range, we’re sure you’ll find one that will be right for your celebration:

Vegan Carrot Cake – Grated carrots, soya milk, walnuts, sultanas, and cinnamon make a deliciously moist vegan sponge. Complimented with creamy vegan buttercream made from vegan butter and a dash of natural lemon flavouring. Crunched walnuts on top.

Vegan Chocolate Cake – Soya milk, chocolate and vegan butter create our delicious and indulgent vegan chocolate sponge. Our secret ingredient is coffee which really brings out the chocolate flavour! Nibbed cocoa pieces are sprinkled on top give some added crunch.

Vegan Chocolate Caramel Cake – This cake has a deliciously moist chocolate sponge which is sandwiched together with lashings of caramel flavoured buttercream and vegan caramel. On top you will find more caramel buttercream finished off with vegan dark chocolate curls. Caramel and chocolate are a match made in heaven!

Vegan Chocolate Brownie – While not technically a cake, brownies make great additions to celebrations (and they’re just a wonderful treat to have in general). You'd never believe vegan brownies could taste this good! Our Vegan Chocolate Brownie is super fudgy in the middle with yummy vegan chocolate chunks running through it. It has a deliciously crisp outer shell with melted vegan chocolate drizzled over the top.
