I was recently made aware of this wonderful vegan (egg-free and dairy-free) bakery that specializes in birthday cakes, wedding cakes, muffins, and savoury tarts. They even have a variety of soy (soya)-free and gluten-free options. But, alas, they are out of my personal reach to sample! Here on the west coast of the United States, I am a far reach from the freshly baked goods of Blue Lotus in the U.K.
However, since they do deliver anywhere in the U.K., and they run a dedicated vegan/dairy-free facility, I thought it only fair to include the reviews of others for this wonderful sounding bakery, and a few pictures to entice!
Carrot & Cinnamon Cake
"Your vegan carrot cake is the best I have ever tasted, including when I was vegetarian rather than vegan. I have served your cakes to non-vegetarians/vegans at a Christmas party and they received a great reception. I guarantee they will please and have no hesitation in recommending your cakes to others. One day delicious vegan cakes like these will be available everywhere. Until then, thank goodness for blue lotus." – Sam Calvert
"I always long to find a really good carrot cake and now I have found one. Very yummy!" – Debbie Cesio
"I live in Northern Scotland and ordered a vegan chocolate cake for my son Noahs 7th birthday. It arrived on the correct date and in perfect condition. It tasted absolutely wonderful and Noah and his twelve non-vegan friends absolutely loved it. We will definitely order it again as well as trying other products. Thank you very much" – Alison Belton
"A very big thank you for the wonderful cake. We ordered it for our son's 4th Birthday (he has food allergies) and he thought it was very yummy, so did his friends and the adults too! We will definitely be ordering again and again… Thank you for making a little boy's birthday extra special!!!!" – Sunil Kaniyur
"I cant believe it, yet another gorgeous delicious cake! If you can't decide which flavour to buy may I suggest buying the whole lot because every single one is just so beautiful in their own right!" – Dawn Forster
Gluten-Free Apple Cake
"The cake itself was a lovely moist texture full of flavour and it didnt have the usual dry cardboard taste that other gluten free cakes tend to have. Unfortunately, Im not a fan of cloves and it seemed to have what I believe to be a rather intense clove flavouring and after-taste about it, which did ruin it for me. If you like cloves (If this indeed was the mystery flavoursome ingredient) though, you will love this cake!!" – Carly Greene
Regal Iced Cake
"JUST TO SAY THAT FINALLY MY SON HAD A BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR HIS 6TH BIRTHDAY THAT HE COULD ACTUALLY EAT AND WANTED TO EAT AS HE HAS DAIRY AND EGG ALLERGIES. HE LOVED IT!! WE ORDERED THE CHOCOLATE FLAVOUR IT WAS DELICIOUS AND ALL OUR PARTY GUESTS LOVED IT TOO. MOST THOUGHT IT WAS NICER THAN NORMAL CHOCOLATE CAKE. SO THANK YOU.THE PACKAGING WAS EXCELLENT ALSO." – Kate Finan
