That June was my birthday month and I received three lovely vegan cake slices from Doni’s father.

In the glass display, you will see yellow labels (Contains NO dairy, eggs or animal products) on some desserts, that means they are VEGAN. Before ordering, ask to ensure they are vegan because Sweet Life Patisserie staff knows which are vegan.
Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake
I am a massive fan of vegan cheesecakes, sometimes it’s difficult to find the right one. My ideal vegan cheesecake has to be creamy (and I hate to taste the tofu). My recent post on a vegan blueberry cheesecake stated that it tasted too much tofu, but this time, it turned out the way I wanted. It could be a different baker that day when it was my birthday! I guess there are different bakers at Sweet Life with different techniques, you never know.
Vegan German Chocolate Cake
I could taste the thick layers of coconut shreds, I thought it would be a coconut chocolate cake without thinking of it as a German Chocolate Cake. I personally do not like the dense dark chocolate frosting. I thought the cake tasted all right, but not my favourite.
Vegan Carrot Cake
The vegan carrot cake slice has a similar texture as the German Chocolate cake as shown above. There was a huge layer of coconut shreds, and I’m not sure I prefer that in my carrot cake. I couldn’t taste the carrot cake (and it was a bit dry). It is personally not my favourite 🙁 But among the three, I do like their vegan blueberry cheesecake as long as it doesn’t taste like tofu-based.
