What’s better than vegan cake? Well, a vegan cake that gets delivered straight to your door, of course.

Thankfully, there are many companies offering such a service and I can tell you, they are all so delicious.

You can get everything from gluten-free cakes and decadent brownies to whole celebration cakes and sourdough doughnuts. Some will even pop through your letterbox, awaiting your arrival after a long hard day at work.

This is truly a great time to be alive! Now, let me take you through all of my favourite vegan cake delivery services in the UK so you can get ordering that much-deserved sweet treat.

My top picks

Are vegan cakes more expensive?

It can be more expensive to make a vegan cake, especially when specialist ingredients are involved. For example, aquafaba may be used as a vegan egg alternative and this can be a little pricier than sourcing eggs. Moreover, if a cake is also gluten-free the flour itself may be more expensive than traditional plain flour. However, when it comes to buying cakes for delivery, I have found most services to cost a similar amount, vegan or not.

Are vegan cakes healthier?

Vegan cakes are free from animal-based ingredients such as butter, eggs, and dairy, which are all high in saturated fat and cholesterol, making them somewhat healthier than their non-vegan counterparts. But vegan cakes do still contain plenty of sugar and other unhealthy ingredients vegan butter. Therefore, they should still be seen as a treat, rather than a daily staple.

  • Diet: Vegan-friendly
  • Options: Dark chocolate truffle, pink guava and strawberry, iced chai and apricot and much more
  • Delivery: Depends on location

Crosstown is one of my favourite discoveries, ever. Their vegan doughnuts are incredible. They are so good that I do wonder why they still offer their non-vegan versions. You’d never guess the vegan ones are vegan!

They are made using their signature sourdough dough mix which gives them a great taste and texture. You will find a few regular flavours always on offer, like their dark chocolate truffle (delicious), and you will also find seasonal specials. I like to order a box whenever they have a new selection, which is actually quite regular. Sorry, stomach.

If you are based in London you can get these on same-day delivery, or you can pick some up from a local store in London, Bath, Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford, or Brighton. For other nationwide destinations, you will have to put your postcode into the checkout to see delivery options.
