Things I like by Gemma Johnson: Glasgow, Go-getters and vegan Cake! Rawnchy ticks all three!
Set up by Poppy in 2016, Rawnchy produce a range of handmade treats, including cakes, tarts and bars that are free from dairy, gluten, soya and refined sugar but are still full of flavour.
As well as ticking the box for healthy living, the environmental box is ticked too as all packaging is recycled, recyclable or biodegradable.
Rawnchy treats can be found all over Scotland and have gained a massive following on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter – which is no surprise as cakes are works of colourful art often adorned with flowers.
The cakes are so stunning they have recently fuelled a Stella McCartney photo shoot as well as a Vivienne Westwood party supporting sustainable fashion – now these fashion icons certainly know good taste!
The website and online shop was only launched in December 2017 yet there is no stopping Poppy as she is currently setting up a home of her own by opening Glasgow’s first ever raw cake shop! I popped along for a sneak peek, chat and some cake of course.
Unsurprisingly the shop is just as gorgeous as her cakes – flowers in the hedging framing the pretty pink shop front and pavement sign created by crazy talented calligrapher Toasty Type.
Currently the shop is being used as a work space for creating cakes for stockists, events and private orders but soon you will be able to pick up a slice of heaven when it opens its doors to the public so make sure to follow Rawnchy to keep updated.
Until then, if you or someone you know is getting married or have a birthday coming up why not order a cake or two? All cakes are free from so they can be enjoyed by everyone, they can also be adapted to your perfect colour scheme as well as personalised of course. Nobody likes old fashioned fruit cake and quite frankly if they are good enough for fashion royalty…
I loved visiting the Rawnchy shop and watching Poppy in action, she uses the most delicious and nutritious ingredients as well as taking the time to ensure every cake looks insanely beautiful.
Poppy is a ray of positivity and an absolute bundle of energy so I have no doubt she could take over the world and I’d happily be part of the Rawnchy army! But for the time being I will keep cheering her on with a face full of delicious cake.
