First Review by beancurdled

not sure if it deserves the 'vegan friendly' moniker - Edit

Don't know whether the "very large range of vegan cakes" in the blurb here is really accurate. Sent my partner in to check out Ministry of Cakes when I first saw it listed on HC a few months ago. He came back disappointed and empty handed saying there wasn't much there. I went in today because I fancied a piece of baklava. In addition to vegan baklava they had an energy ball, raw bounty slice, vegan brownie and vegan blondie. They blondie and brownie looked okay but more cakey than gooey. Was pretty disappointed with the baklava - the pastry was soggy, not even crisp at the edges. Couldn't taste nuts, or cinnamon, or lemon zest - just sugar. Props to them for making an effort to include a few vegan items but in Brunswick I don't think this is really anything special. They didn't seem to have any savoury vegan options and the handful of vegan sweets they had weren't interesting or creative.

Pros: points for effort

Cons: limited vegan range , soggy baklava
