Mad Hatter Cupcakery
Usually candy-coloured and decadent – cupcakes can be a sugar-loaded indulgence, a sugar-loaded sometimes food. But Jessica van der Walt of Mad Hatter Cupcakery is baking a different kind of cake, a vegan version with greatly reduced kilojoules.
With flavours such as triple-choc, snikers (like Snickers), salted-caramel popcorn and tiramisu, van der Walt insists that the indulgent essence of the cupcakes has not been compromised with the removal of animal-based ingredients like butter and eggs.
Van der Walt has also opened a patisserie at their production headquarters in Darlinghurst. Here you can also find signature cupcakes as well as tarts, pastries and eggless macaroons, which according to van der Walt, “Taste very much like the real thing.”
