As quirky brand names go, Cake or Death must surely take the prize.
Is it a choice? Not sure. If another reason were needed to give Veganuary a try, this east London vegan bakery could well be it.
Creating some of the UK’s most loved brownies available nationwide and delivered hassle-free through your letterbox.
Cake or Death’s festive flavours come boxed in striking white and silver leopard print.
All that remains is to choose your flavour from Salted Caramel, Sea Salt X Biscoff, Peanut Butter and Raspberry.
If you can’t decide, opt for a selection box or if you’re feeling really daring, go for the Surprise Box – six generous pieces of brownies, all of someone else’s choosing.
Who knew eating sweet treats could help save the planet?
You heard it here, first. Cake or Death brownies are everything a brownie should be and more; fudgy, indulgent and very moreish, all made with the very best quality plant-based ingredients.
Vegans and non-vegans alike are huge fans. www.cakeordeath.net

The cold weather calls for one thing – winter warmers.
For those all cooked out after the festive season, Charlie Bigham’s has all your catering needs sorted.
Meals come in portions for one or two and take less than half an hour to reheat.
Best of all they’re oven cooked so there’s none of that nuked taste of microwaved fodder.
In fact, they’re almost as good as a dine-in restaurant experience.
The range is varied, taking in the classics of traditional British cooking, with Cottage Pie, and a veggie version, Fish Pie, moving onward to France, with Beouf Bourginon, and east wards to North African and on to Asia.
Indian and Thai curries, as well as Chinese dishes, all make an appearance. These are better than a take away and a cheaper.
Charlie Bigham’s meals are cooked using the fresh ingredients and have to be eaten within a few days and can’t be frozen.
The range of puddings is good – all the usual suspect sponge puddings, plus a Cherry Bakewell Pudding.
