Hi. I’m Lesley and I’m the founder and owner of Lesley’s Vegan Cakes!
I’d been vegetarian for many years but in January 2021, as part of the Veganuary challenge I decided to become vegan. It was so much easier than I thought it would be and is now an incredibly important part of my life.
I’ve always loved baking and would regularly be the cake maker for family birthdays. It was suggested by a friend a while ago that I should have a stall (thanks Kate!). So I did! I had my first stall at Sherwood Vegan Market in early 2022 (wonderful place) and I loved it. I now regularly have a stall there. I also trade at a number of other local markets including the West Bridgford Vegan Market, Newark Vegan Market and The Stalls Market, also in West Bridgford. I do bespoke orders for celebration cakes for customers in and around Nottingham.
I love being able to provide high quality, scrumptious vegan cakes and bakes for vegans and non-vegans alike. Vegan cake options are improving all the time but it does feel good to be able to add to the choice out there.
