New Bakery in Milwaukee

Vegan bakery Compassionate Cake specializes in elaborately decorated gourmet baked goods.


A new, community-funded vegan bakery in Milwaukee, WI is serving up cruelty-free treats such as cupcakes and pocket pies, each inspired by the flavors of the season. Housed inside the city’s only 100-percent fair-trade coffee shop Brewing Grounds for Change, Compassionate Cake offers a daily menu of gourmet baked goods and French pastries, as well as more elaborate cakes for special occasions. Many of Compassionate Cake’s items feature detailed decorations, handmade by owner and longtime-vegan Jessica Weisnicht, whose mission is to make memorable vegan sweets that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Locals can pick up Compassionate Cake’s baked goods in person Monday through Friday, or can submit special orders by email on the weekend.
