Melbourne’s Sweet 16 Makers for Vegan Cake and Treats

A state of disaster has now been declared for Melbourne, but we can all still support our local vegan cake and sweet treats makers if and when we can.

Small businesses are facing another six weeks of lockdown laws, and they can only offer takeaway, contactless pick-up and home delivery options to their customers. It’s a scary time for small businesses. However, we can still show our vegan makers support and give them our patronage so they can keep their doors open.

Also, our loved ones can still celebrate their birthdays while under lockdown with a bespoke vegan cake delivery or a box of their favourite vegan sweet treats.  Melbourne has a long list of makers so here is Melbourne’s ‘Sweet 16’ to choose from.

Show your support, support your local vegan businesses and bring a smile to a loved one’s face during this time of staying at home. Just make sure you’re observing local lockdown laws, including staying within the distance you can travel and wear a mask if you venture out for a pick-up.

Yes, we can all make it through this time together. Let’s go local, first!
