La Mouche Bakes
Hi! I’m Fay and I am the one-woman-show that is La Mouche Bakes.
I’ve been baking-obsessed since I was a teenager, and spent most of my spare time playing around with recipes and techniques to perfect my baking skills.
At 18 years old, I made the first switch to becoming vegetarian and started experimenting with different foods - sharing my learnings and creations in a recipe blog.
After adapting to a vegetarian diet, I then made the next transition and became vegan. My love of baking - and experimenting with recipes - continued to grow, and I took on the challenge of adapting non-vegan recipes into delicious plant-based creations. And, after fine-tuning my recipes, I wrote and published a cookbook in 2016.
Then came a big change in my life. After growing up in Belgium, I took the plunge and moved to London almost four years ago. Driven by my passion for plant-based baking, I started working in some of London’s most ‘famous’ vegan bakeries.
I always felt that - although there was a lot of progress - the quality of vegan baked goods available was lacking. It felt uninspired, a bit boring and - at times - just too over the top. My dream was to start my own food business and, after leaving my last job, I finally did.
And here we are!
I wanted to make products that are decadent, delicious and full of high quality ingredients - the kind of baked goods that non-vegans try and go
“Wow, I would never have guessed this was vegan!”
I source the finest ingredients from around the world, and use products that are ethical, ecological and produce minimum waste. I create baked goods that taste as good as they look - and look as good as they taste!
