Vegan cakes at the Oranjezicht City Farm market

A few weeks ago Martinus and I spent the day in Cape Town. Heather from skinny laminx shared a photo of vegan cakes from the Oranjezicht City Farm market on her Instagram feed a while back, so I knew it would be the perfect market for us to visit. It can be difficult to find vegan food in South Africa, especially baked goods. The Spades and Spoons Deli had a variety of delicious desserts, some raw. We couldn't decide, so we got a few different slices to share. Chocolate brownie, carrot cake, raw peppermint chocolate cake and a raw almond chocolate tart. Unfortunately it was raining and I didn't take any photos, but they have a lot on their Facebook page. The carrot cake was the best I've ever had, I can't wait to visit them again.

Martinus did this adorable illustration of us enjoying the Spades and Spoons cake.

PS. Martinus is having a caricature giveaway on his blog and it's open internationally.
