Ms Cupcake Vegan Bakery Opens in London

Ms. Cupcake opened April 1st in Brixton. She’s London’s first all vegan bakery. I’ve been to see her many times in Brick Lane but this was my first ever trip to Brixton! I met Ms. Cupcake at Iron Cupcake almost one year ago.
The shop is very spacious and as you can see the cupcakes are made right there! Not too many shops make their cupcakes on the premises.

Her right hand man Jason was in the shop when I arrived. There he is hard at work making more cupcakes. Anne and I both arrived at the same time and had a coffee outside at Rosie’s. I love getting together with my blogging friends for a little cake gossip! My husband and co-workers can only take some much cake talk.

The shop has huge windows all at the front and it was incredibly bright hence all the glare on the cupcake cases. I bought a key lime cupcake to take home with me. The frosting was great and had a really nice lime flavor.


They also have a few vegan books and cupcake paraphernalia for sale.
Anne and I were both tempted down to the bakery by these babies. Vegan donuts! I have never had a vegan donut before and they taste no different than a regular donut. If there is a baked good that London is missing it’s donuts. I have made a few of my own donuts.
Jason prepared us a whole plate of goodies to try! I enjoyed the Boston Cream donut the most but the custard was a bit absorbed into the donut. I think that the cookie sandwiches are my new favorite. I really liked the vanilla one and I could eat 10 of them!
I’ll definitely be back!

    I've never tried vegan before, really are they good?

  3. Those look delicious! I would love to try a Donut. Its been a very long time since I've had a donut since North Dakota doesn't think we need any.

  4. You all in the UK are so lucky! You have so many bakeries and cupcake shops! Here in Vancouver, the only cupcakes you can get are either store-bought, or ones homemade. (I prefer homemade but with 3 kids, a husband, my parents living with me, and work really piles up. I don't have much spare time. But whenever I have some, it's in my friends bakery or house creating cupcakes from your brilliant blog! We need more cupcakes shops in town…)

  5. Ohh, what a good find! And the key lime our uptake sounds a treat! Will be paying a visit soon!

    @Dominique – the ones at ms cupcake taste like regular cupcakes. you can't tell they're vegan. I've only ever had 2 or 3 other vegan cupcakes and they were ok as well. Depends who makes them I suppose!

    @Lacey & Kiara – I am so suprised that we have more bakery stuff than some north american places. I thought we were way behind!

  12. Yes, we need much more cupcake shops here. The only real one I've been to is past the border in Seattle. Nearly 3 hours away! But I tend to visit and fill in my sweet tooth on a free weekend. Although with the new dog, I can't visit as much as I can… :)
