After a successful trial in select Queensland stores, iconic Australian bakery The Cheesecake Shop has added two vegan cake flavours– Vegan Chocolate and Vegan Strawberry Choc – to its menu nationwide.
The cakes have two layers and a jam and frosting middle filling, and they’re topped with a Belgian chocolate drip, popcorn, dried raspberries, and pistachios.
The chain has almost 200 shops across Australia, so this is a huge win for animals.

According to The Cheesecake Shop, the vegan cakes are available in the cabinet for walk-ins – but given Australia’s huge appetite for all things vegan, it’s best to order in advance.
