Vincent & Jules, aka Christina Langham and Amanda Terry, are two of the sassiest promoters in Brisbane. With their first birthday bash coming up at The Zoo this Saturday night, 6 August the girls have been out “researching” birthday cakes; sampling some of the finest vegan desserts in town.
Co-Founder Amanda Terry says the key to a good cake is the amount of effort that goes into making it.
“What makes a good dessert? Care, if you take the time to put effort into baking (or un-baking in regards to raw desserts) then that is what I believe makes your cake a good cake.”
Ahead of their birthday bash we asked Christina and Amanda to give us a list of their favourite vegan cakes and the best places to buy them from. After all, what’s a birthday without birthday cake?
VINCENT & JULES’ GUIDE TO THE BEST VEGAN CAKES IN TOWN
- Fundies Wholefood Café (Brisbane).
My current number one! There in the heart of vintage clothing stores, antiques and boutiques lie several wonderful cafes catering to vegans. Fundies has the most chewy, dense, cacao-y, just-enough-crunch-on-top chocolate brownie. Do me a favour and go there.
- Noosa Chocolate Factory (Noosa).
Their dark chocolate rocky road deserves a shout out. Anything with marshmallows is usually a no-go for vegans but these Willy Wonka’s have made vegan rocky road magic, with super soft marshmallows and a strawberry jelly, it is hard to not buy their biggest slab.
- Vegerama (Brisbane).
They do an assortment of desserts ranging from deliciously milky tapioca, to a pumpkin pie slice and berry/lime cheesecakes. Their dessert menu changes which is awesome, got to love a seasonal menu.
- The Green Edge (Brisbane).
One of my favourite places to grocery shop at and eat. Their cupcakes have many indulgent and quirky flavours, the shop also hosts desserts and goodies from overseas, and I always like to get the “Stroopwafel” (Dutch syrup waffle) while I’m there.
- Doughnut Time (Brisbane).
These guys have really stepped up to the plate. They have several vegan options from classic cinnamon, to jelly filled and caramel topped donuts. YUM!
Highly recommended: Govinda’s, Lost Boys, Charlies Fruit Market, Sol Breads and Loving Hut.
