About Katherine aka CupKates
Hi! I'm Kate, an arts administrator with a love for baking. I've always loved baking and creating unique and surprising treats. My favourite thing to do is ask someone what their favourite snack food is, and then turn it into a cupcake, cake, tart - whatever! For the past three years, my focus has shifted to vegan baking in a quest to prove that delicious treats can be beautiful, simple, and cruelty-free. Even if you're not vegan or vegetarian, cutting down on animal products benefits the environment, health, your wallet, and especially the animals! So I always think why not go vegan where you can, right? Not to mention that bringing something vegan to a party is a way to ensure that people with so many dietary restrictions can enjoy your treat. SO! Let's make something beautiful, ok?
