Although we’re not actually vegans our family decided to make a little trip over to Wolverhampton for the Vegan Festival there this weekend, as we thought it would be interesting to see what products were available.
My husband was particularly intrigued by the vegan ‘fish’ and chips being served by Something Fishy. The kids and I, on the other hand, were far more interested in the vegan cupcake competition where the audience would get to sample the entries!
If I didn’t know better our visit would have had me thinking that vegans eat nothing but cake. Almost every other stall seemed to have cake in some shape or form, from chocolate tiffin to lemon cupcakes to brownies and everything in between. Of course we all had to sample a good variety. After all we had travelled for nearly 3 hours to get there! The verdict? Vegan cake is absolutely yummy. It’s deliciously moist, unlike a lot of ordinary cake. I’m going to get my hands on a recipe for vegan cupcakes and have a go, so watch this space.
The festival itself was very, very crowded and it was sometimes difficult to get a good look at some stalls, but all in all it was very interesting. We sampled the full range of Goody Good Stuff sweets and ended up buying a bag full.
We also bought a ridiculous amount of other sweets and treats, all in the name of research, of course, for the benefit of you, my lovely readers . I’ll be adding various reviews as we munch our way through them all. You can see the big smile on my son’s face after he bought himself a slab of banana Moo Free chocolate!
We didn’t just eat sweets and cake though. In my next post I’ll let you know about the ‘real’ food we tried, including the vegan ‘fish’ and chips my husband was so keen on sampling.
