PETA Launches Sixth Annual Competition to Find the Best Cruelty-Free Treat in the UK

London – Do you have what it takes to win PETA’s Great Vegan Bake-Off? The annual competition – now in its sixth year – invites bakers from all backgrounds to put their skills to the test and share their favourite egg- and dairy-free creations with the animal rights group. Finalists will have their recipes featured by PETA, and the winner will be crowned the Great Vegan Bake-Off champion for 2018.

Last year’s winner, Lorna Songhurst, the founder of Totally Nuts by Blue-Milk catering company in Kent, snagged top honours for her indulgent raw chocolate-orange layer cake topped with fluffy chocolate mousse.

“It’s time for the UK’s top vegan bakers to show us what they’ve got,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “PETA’s Great Vegan Bake-Off seeks to crown the best cruelty-free confections, from egg-free meringues to coconut-milk custard and beyond.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way” – notes that vegan baking is kind to mother cows, who are forcibly impregnated and then separated from their newborns on dairy farms, and to chickens, who are kept in tiny wire cages on filthy egg farms. Going vegan is also a great way to reduce our risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.

Contestants in the Great Vegan Bake-Off must submit their recipes via this entry form by 5 pm on 1 October. For full contest details, please visit PETA.org.uk.
