Finalist Voting Begins in Order to Help PETA Choose Who it Should Crown as the Best Cruelty-Free Baker

London – Voting has opened in PETA's contest to help it decide who it should choose as the best vegan baker in the UK. After much consideration (and drooling over the delicious baked goods), PETA has selected 10 finalists, and now the public will help PETA decide who it should crown as The Great Vegan Bake-Off champion for 2014. The finalists and their creations can be found here.

"We were so inundated with terrific cruelty-free dishes that it was almost impossible to narrow the entries down to just 10 finalists", says PETA's Elisa Allen. "Everyone who entered this contest is already a winner for showing that vegan baking is a piece of (egg- and dairy-free) cake!"

Here are the finalists, along with their entries: Laurianne's walnut-and-coffee tartelette from 100 Days of Vegan Cakes, Jennifer's coffee-and-walnut cheese-less cake from PS … It's Vegan, Juliane's coconut, mint and lime bread from Veggiephile, Emily's dark chocolate cupcakes from Vegan Lass, Katy's ombre vanilla dream cake from Little Miss Meat-Free, Hannah's banana split cake from Hannah Banana Bakery, Malwina's chocolate-and-cherry cake from The Stories at the Vegetarian Table, Annabelle's double chocolate cake from The Flexitarian, Lisa's banana-and-walnut spelt loaf from Thirty-Something Vegan and Jasmine's raspberry cake from Self Sufficient Cafe.

Voting on the finalists to help PETA determine who it should choose as the winner will run from today to 7 September. Winners will be chosen by PETA based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced on 10 September. See the full contest details here.

All the finalists are available for interviews. Please contact PETA to arrange one. For more information and to vote in the contest, please visit PETA.org.uk.
