About CVB

Who we are

Me and Patrick cutting our wedding cake (made by CVB, of course!)

My name is Rachel, and I am the person behind Cotswold Vegan Bakery. I have been baking professionally since 2019, and set up CVB in 2021 and opened the bakery at 88 London Road in 2023. I’m the head baker, head of marketing, and administrator in chief, so my days are very full! You might also recognise my husband, Patrick, who helps me when he can.

I specialise in simple, rustic designs that give the cake itself pride of place. I use natural elements like flowers and fruits as much as I can, and I love the variety and colour they bring to my baking.

My focus is on baking celebration cakes to order, and this is how I spend most of my working week. The bakery is also open three days a week for takeaway treats. Beyond this, you might find me trading at markets in and around Gloucestershire, and you might spot my cakes in local cafés.

88 London Road

Our bakery at 88 London Road is open for takeaway three days a week, and four days a week for collection of pre-ordered cakes.

We offer a small selection of cakes by the slice, cupcakes, mini loaves, cookies, and pastries. Our flavours rotate each week, and we try to offer a mix of old favourites and new flavours.

We also offer a curated range of giftware and greetings cards made by local producers, as well as some of our favourite baking books.

We are open for takeaway from 10am to 4pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
