Vegan Wedding Cake Tasting and Secret Suppers

This week we went for wedding cake tasting through the Sweet Tooth Cakery here in Vancouver. This was very exciting for me, obviously because it is wedding cake, but also because it is gluten free, dairy free and soy free... and it tastes amazing!! We tried the chocolate cake (you can also have carrot, lemon, ginger spice, coconut, etc) with chocolate ganache (which was made with coconut milk) and raspberry and cherry fillings. We also tried buttercream icing (made out of palm oil and organic sugar). There was also vegan fondant available for a finish. The Sweet Tooth Cakery also makes cakes for other special occasions like birthdays, etc., and you can also order other goodies like cookies, quick breads and biscotti.

In one of my VegNews magazines they discussed the concept of Secret Suppers. Apparently these are popping up all over the world (vegan and non-vegan). Secret Suppers are an awesome way to eat amazing food for a reasonable price, get to know the chef, but also not be in a super crowded restaurant environment where they are mass producing the same dishes over and over. The dishes are often seasonal and the chef caters for only a few people. I discovered this vegan secret supper website and the menues look fantastic. We haven't tried it out yet, but it's definitely on the to do list.
