Alévri & Co.

As an artist, Dawn strives to do everything with intention (“do nothing without intention”). From sourcing ingredients to designing cakes. Dawn is known for her ethereal moody aesthetic and painterly artistry. EVERYTHING she creates is 100% vegan. And with this, she strives to use plant-derived ingredients to avoid contributing to the oppression of animals. She also aims to purchase from brands with ethical and sustainable farming practices. My favorite flavor of hers is Coco Banana Dream. It is a yummy Banana sponge, filled with coconut curd and jammy pineapples, iced with coconut Swiss meringue buttercream. If you are someone who enjoys eating delicious cake, please do inquire.

Gabby Bakes, LLC

When I see Gabby, I instantly think of sunshine and good vibes. Her cakes are full of color and frills but more importantly, 100% vegan. She’s a one-woman business that is primarily concerned about the abuses of human and non-human animals across our food systems, and her practices reflect that. She strives to use whole, local, and fairly traded ingredients so any time you buy a Gabby Bakes cake, you’re also in a small way supporting a small farmer somewhere.
