Lush Vegan Food – new vegan business

Rebecca from Lush Vegan Food based near Fareham in Hampshire has just added a shop her business facebook page. Currently they are collect only (fresh or frozen) but she will look into postage options soon. Muffins, torte and banana bread are amongst the offerings so far, with the range sure to expand soon.

She has lived in good ole Stubbington all her life, and last month she quit her 14 and a half year job to do something she loves and hopefully will be successful in. There is a beach nearby, so why not make a day of it at the beach and collect some sweet treats to take home.

“I hope my cakes are not just for vegans but for anyone dairy free, wanting to eat more plant based products or just people who love cake! I am not your average typical vegan ha and have the love handles and sweet tooth to prove it! I would appreciate all your support, and spreading the word around for me. I am literally bricking it ha as never run my own business before, but did a lot of research, am approved by environmental health and running my little venture from my trusty kitchen. The support people means everything to me.”

Rebecca hopes to branch out to extend her range with frozen meals too!

UPDATE: She now does savoury meals including Yorkshire puddings!

Gnawesome Cake Mix Review

Recently I was lucky enough to be sent a cake mix to test. Gnawesome are a new vegan cake mix business in Peterborough. All products are certified Vegan by the Vegan Society

GNAWESOME make delicious, heathy, vegan baking mixes. I got sent the lemon and coconut cake and it was easy to make and tasted delicious. The only thing I suggested to them was that they update the instructions to include fan ovens and they are going to do this. The Gnawesome website also give variations like adding raisins and this would also be good on the container.

Gnawesome has a great squirrel logo and anyone that knows me well will know this is my favourite animal. This container I have kept and will be upcycled at a later date and is currently being used to store things before I decorate it!

Ingredients, wheat flour, sugar desiccated coconut, bicarbonate of soda.

You then add water, lemon, vinegar and oil.

I opted to make a cake, but there is also instructions to make fairy cakes.

Viola…. yum yum yum…

Products available
– Vegan Lemon and Coconut Cake Mix £2.99
– Vegan Choc Chip Cookie Mix £2.99
– Vegan Chocolate Cake Mix £2.99
– Vegan Chocolate Pecan Brownie Mix £4.99
Gnawesome can also be found at some vegan events, contact them to find out more. They are currently looking for outlets, please get in touch if you can help.

Review of temporary tattoos from Things I Care About

July 2017 Update – new products now available from Things I Care About.

April 2017

We got sent these two sheets of temporary tattoos to try from Things I Care About.

and I have slowly been trying them out. Some for a day or two, some for a week or two. They last well and are actually quite hard to get off. They take a bit of a scrub to get off. But that’s what you want really so they don’t rub off easily when worn. If clothing is worn over any with a clear area such as the rabbit, the colour can be picked up. I have been very pleased with them and can highly recommend them. Especially if your like me and like a change and wouldn’t find it easy to just pick one tattoo.

This is how you put them on. Cut close to picture, peel off top clear sheet, place where you want it and wet it. Slide off, dry and that’s it. To remove use soap and water and rub with a washcloth or similar for friction. The area will be a bit pink, but will soon recover ready for your next one.

Things I care about also sells these fabulous badges. I also got sent some of these and they are nice and large and good quality. Here is the ones they sell.

and they also sell fridge magnets and iron on patches and are expanding the products they sell all the time.

Hannah Banana Bakery Marshmallow Brownie Review

I was lucky enough to be sent a delicious Unicorn marshmallow brownie recently to review from Hannah at the fantastic Hannah Banana Bakery. Just looking at the website  you will be amazed at what she can do and the bakery has won many awards too and even her business card is fantastic!

Hannah has recently started doing postal brownies and there is a few to choose from including a lovely unicorn marshmallow brownie that I got sent to sample. It comes in a see through box with a wooden fork. Personally I don’t think there was a need for a fork, but the packaging overall look is great.

So once taken out of the box 

The ingredients

What a slice looks like. I tried a fork full taking in the overall taste and also of each layer. All I can say is that it certainly gets my thumbs up. The marshmallow topping is amazing too and she also sells her own homemade marshmallows too I believe. 

I also gave some to my lovely boss Claire to take home and sample and this is what she said.

“It was so delicious, I am quite a brownie snob and I absolutely loved it.”

We both couldn’t believe how great the marshmallow was.

This is the link to the postal brownies where there is a choice of five flavours. They are baked through the night on Thursdays and sent out first class on Friday.

Do check out the bespoke cakes and ready to order cakes for those round the Southhampton area.

A bakery certainly worth a follow on Facebook and Instagram and if you are thinking of using her services you need to book well in advance as she gets very busy. No surprise as this is a award winning bakery. She can also be found at vegan events around Southampton area selling yummy goodies.
