Celebration cakes, cookies and vegan meringues. I am a Hackney Wick based baker. I sculpt cake like clay and cover it in fondant icing to look like porcelain sculptures. Some of my new range is vegan friendly, and I like to use seasonal British produce in the bakes. I am inspired by nature to create decadent, edible pieces of art. It’s soulful, surprising sculptures. It would be wonderful to display my new range of cake sculptures. Recent feedback: “Ordered a vegan chocolate birthday cake for my boyfriend . That cake was sooo delicious – the chocolate smell when I picked it up overwhelming and it looked beautiful. Mareli is a great person- she took super care of the cake . From ordering to pick up everything was easy . A super yummy vegan experience!!Thank you!!” (Birgit Berlin)
I Am Nut OK:
We are a couple that makes artisanal vegan cheeses and spreads here in Hackney and started I AM NUT OK in December 2017. On weekends you can find us at Broadway Vegan Market, Hackney Downs Market, and Victoria Park Market. Currently, we have two types of cashew cream cheese spreads and a mushroom pate: Beetroot & Garlic, Smoky & Spicy, and Truffle & Walnut. Our customers are crazy for our spreads and nutty puns! Here’s a review where we are mentioned: www.meatfreefitness.co.uk/vegan-lifestyle-article/broadway-vegan-market-review
LIFT Energy Balls:
I began making energy balls about a year ago after trying many available on the market. I always found them to be too sweet and so I started making my own using no refined sugars or syrups. I use naturally high energy and nutrient-dense ingredients such as dates, nuts and seeds and combine them with spices, dried fruit and other superfoods to make interesting and unusual taste combinations. The name Lift is a reference to the energy ‘lift’ they provide and a nod to one of my favourite pastimes! They make a fantastic pre/post workout snack or anytime you need a little ‘lift’!
The Sunny Spoon:
The Sunny Spoon is a French vegan patisserie. I am a french pastry chef turned vegan 5 years ago. I adapted all the french classics into plant-based versions. Best sellers are the lemon meringue tarts, the vanilla millefeuille, the pear and almond tart and the danishes. The menu changes quite often and I use local and seasonal products. I have a really strong and loyal customer base, vegan and non-vegan.
At La Buenaventura we create homemade traditional Spanish cuisine – 100% plant based. Our vegan chorizo is made with the best Spanish smoked paprika and dried oregano from the region of La Vera. The perfect topping for pizza, added to stews or in a sandwich. We also have a spicy version with extra hot paprika. We make a vegan Spanish omelette with potatoes and onions slow cooked in extra virgin olive oil and fried with flavoursome no-egg mix. Our brava sauce is loaded with spicy paprika and our mayos are made with organic soy milk. We have a tartar sauce, coriander mayo and our best seller, garlic mayo.
