Vegan Brownies @ Stripey Sundae, Nicholls

Original Post by the owner of Stripey Sundae

I’m the owner of Stripey Sundae and the guy that makes everything here. I’ve been really impressed with the positive response you all have given me with the vegan ice creams, so I’d like to try doing a little more and doing vegan baked goods too.
I’ve just done a batch of vegan brownies, and I’m looking for suggestions of what else you think would go well with vegan ice cream?

Gungahlin Lakes Golf Club (Vegan-Friendly)

Gungahlin Lakes Golf ClubMichelle and Gareth:  We had a great dinner with the extended family at Gungahlin Lakes club tonight. Thanks to the resident vegan, Cassie, for guiding us through the menu and looking after us so well. ? We had the veggie supreme pizza which was lovely, and there were two other mains to choose from as well. Cassie even rustled up some vegan sorbet for us!  It was so good to be able to go somewhere that the toddler of the family can find some entertainment in the kids room for a while when it all becomes too much. 🙂

Vegan Meals Available (information from Cassie Fekete):

  • The veggie supreme pizza (pictured below) is on the main pizza menu. Just make sure you ask for it without the cheese.
  • There is also an Asian stirfry, which when you ask for the vegetarian option, is vegan friendly.
  • The other vegan option is the mushroom stack with vegetables. It is two flat mushrooms, stuffed with spiced chickpeas, potato and other veg, with a side of veg or salad.
  • As I told Michelle and Gareth last night, anything fried; wedges, chips, may be vegan as far as ingredients go, but may be in contact with animal products when in the fryer. 🙂

Veganarchy Bakery and Deli (Civic) and Market Stalls (Kingston and Handmade)



Veganarchy is a small independent business based in Canberra, Australia. Gabrielle bakes all of the delicious cupcakes + other yummy treats, fresh and on request using organic + fair-trade ingredients where possible, she can cater for all your special events: birthdays, morning + afternoon teas, for offices events, engagements, weddings, movie marathons, really… just any time you can think of to eat sweets.

Like most small businesses, Veganarchy started as a hobby, with Gabrielle spending hours baking, tweaking and taste testing at home. Recognising an opportunity to cater for vegans and allergy suffers in Canberra, Gabrielle quickly progressed to offering up tasty treats for donation at local shows, and holding quarterly fund raising events to raise money for animal welfare organisations. From this, Veganarchy Sweets and Eats was born.

With 10 years of vegan baking under her belt Gabrielle has developed an extensive catalogue of sweets. Focusing on making quality vegan baked goods that will rival any counterpart. Veganarchy caters for cafes during the week, attends markets on most weekends, and takes as many personal orders as humanly possible!

Until May 2018 Gabrielle operated the whole business on her own (with some help for markets) and Veganarchy Sweets ‘N’ Eats is a dream come true and complete labour of love for her.

The goal of opening a vegan bakery + deli in Canberra Australia has finally been achieved and you can find Croissant D’Or by Veganarchy 5 days a week 7:30am – 3:30pm at 33 East Row Civic. Croissant D’Or opened 1978 and for 40 years has been a Canberra institution, when the opportunity arose to take over the shopfront Gabrielle decided in was important to merge the brands and expand her menu further into French Patisserie products.

While recipes for the perfect Croissants, Danishes, Petit Fours and Macarons are being finalised you can still stop in for sweets: cupcakes, muffins, cookies, cheesecake, raw snickers, donuts, and brownies; and savoury foods: an ever changing selection of toasties, pies, pastries, bagels, burgers and salads. In the near future Veganarchy’s deli selection of vegan cheeses, meats and prepared foods will be available.

Veganarchy still supplies wholesale to cafes and showcases products at markets to extend their reach proving that no animals need to be harmed to make a delicious moist cake, a melt in your mouth cookie or slice. Check the Market page for upcoming dates.
