Why I want to be mentor in this category: Vegan baking is very simple and satisfying. It is fun and healthy to bake using minimal ingredients.
What inspires me in this category: To not use animal byproducts is healthier for you, the environment and animals. Egg and dairy allergies are quite common so Vegan baking is best for social situations.
Experience: The Goodness Bakeshop is known for vegan and allergy sensitive baking.
Biggest Lesson Learned: Vegan baking is best by omitting egg and dairy from favorite traditional recipes and focusing on technique.
