Who doesn’t love a good drool-worthy #vegancakes scroll through Instagram? These tantalizing images of towering, tricked-out, buttercream-adorned desserts are fun to fantasize about, but also come with a generous serving of FOMO. When you spot a gorgeous cake but live 500 miles away, consider cake by mail. Many of the skilled, independent vegan bakers that make you swoon on Instagram have broken through the distance barrier and configured a way to ship their edible creations nationwide (or at least within the continental US). Thanks to precise planning and a fair share of dry ice, you can now Instagram your cake and eat it, too! 

Is cake always vegan?

If you walk into a regular bakery, you’ll usually find that most of the cakes are made with animal products, like eggs, milk, and butter. But increasingly, more bakeries are catering to vegan tastes (or they’re totally vegan!).

Instead of milk and butter, most opt for plant-based varieties to make their tasty concoctions, like oat milk or sunflower spread. And instead of eggs, a wide variety of ingredients can be used, like aquafaba, for example. For more guidance on replacing chicken eggs in baking, follow our guide here.

3 Karma Baker

This tiny little Westlake Village, CA bakery became Instagram-famous with the advent of the unicorn and soon-to-follow mermaid cake doughnuts. Hastened by the furious demand, owner Celine Ikeler developed a way to successfully ship these sweet delicacies—along with a selection of her cakes, cookies, and brownies—to those outside her suburban bakery’s home. For the deep, dark chocolate diehards out there, her Chocolate Fudge Cake cannot be beaten. However, those who do not identify as chocoholics will enjoy the Strawberry Eclair Crunch, Lemon Raspberry, or the ever-classic Lemon Cake.
