Great Vegan Bake-Off – Previous Winners
PETA’s Great Vegan Bake-Off launched in 2013 and has been a massive success – dozens of bloggers have shown off their baking prowess. Last year, the finalists made a splash, and many of their blogs and recipes were featured in local and national media. This year, the competition is set to be even more exciting.
Take inspiration from previous winners before you start working on your own creation.
Raw Chocolate-Orange Layer Cake Topped With Fluffy Chocolate Mousse
Lorna Songhurst is the founder of Totally Nuts by Blue-Milk catering company in Sevenoaks, Kent, and her cake wowed voters and PETA judges alike in 2017. The decadent layers topped with chocolate mousse and chocolate-orange truffles had us salivating, and the addition of vegan honeycomb was both unexpected and inspired.
Great British Lemon Meringue Show Stopper
The Great British Lemon Meringue Show Stopper cake by Maisie Stedman of Obviously Vegan won PETA’s contest last year.
The Newcastle-upon-Tyne blogger’s decadent cake made our stomachs rumble. Her use of the innovative ingredient aquafaba was both unexpected and inspired, and her easy-to-follow recipe showed just how simple vegan baking can be.
Chocolate Beetroot Cake
The chocolate beetroot cake by sisters Veronica and Amy of Wrapped in Newspaper blew us away in 2015.
Veronica, a charity communications executive from Chesham, and Amy, an architect from Bethnal Green, are the co-bloggers behind Wrapped in Newspaper. Together, they whipped up the most delectable chocolate beetroot cake we’ve ever seen. See the full recipe here.
