Cake purists have wondered. If I'm not vegan, why do I even bother with vegan cake?
Simple truth is, I like it. Regular cake is not very consistent, most of it is not great, and most restaurants that I dine at carry vegan desserts. There's a new reason why, however, and that would be the vegan chocolate mint cake at Dock Street Brewery. It follows every chocolate cake rule and is exceptional for sharing, chocolate mustaches, and endorphins. So thanks to reader and baker Vanessa for the tip.
