Remember how excited I was about the impending Cruelty-Free Festival WA and how much fun I had at last year’s festival?
Then you can imagine just how much fun I had on Saturday (excited squeeeal)!
This year the festival was bigger and better with even more stalls, demonstrations, friendly people, great music and amaaaaazing food.
I went one better this year too and volunteered to help out on the cake stand to raise money for the amazing work that Animal Rights Advocates do and bring vegan cakes to the masses! Because vegans do it better! YEAH!
(To the Bloggers out there: as you can see, I’m going cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs over the new Pixlr O-Matic toy I’ve only just discovered. Please do not adjust your television sets. Normal viewing will be resumed in the next post. Maybe.)
With help from my gorgeous friend Dom, Festival Eve was all about baking Mum’s Amazing Carrot Cake, cupcake style.
And then up at Crazy O’Clock on Festival morning to get those bad boys iced and ready!
A heap of other gorgeous vegans donated their time and cakes too. You don’t need to tell a vegan to bring it. Game, set and match.
10am and the cake stand was ready to go! I volunteered for the PR role – talking to people about veganism, answering questions and signing them up to the ARA Mailing List to receive all of our cake recipes and info.
The crazy fun cake stand crew!
Assuming position in my (vegan) Star Wars boots, ready for action!
Total ‘nawww’ moment! Feeling the love. ♥
SO many people turned up, despite a few rainy patches. I got excited!
And I may have missed snaps of all the delicious food I ate that day (oops, hungry), but I did get one of me getting very happy with my very first ever young coconut!
But wait, there’s more! To check out more photos of this amazing day including live music, face painting, puppies, demonstrations, eco goodies, organic spa products, happy people, animal love and amazing food from the likes of Loving Hut and Heavenly Plate, just click HERE. Tell them I sent you.
Until next time, have a beautiful day, glitterbugs!
Love and sparkles,
