PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have just released the names of the finalists in the Great Vegan Bake Off and one of them is a 12 year old vegan boy named William, aka The Vegan Kid.
William Hibbitts is from Norwich and is utterly obsessed with baking vegan cakes. His entry to the GVBO is his signature Peanut Butter Sponge Cake that wowed social media groups earlier in the summer.
The Vegan Kid told us how happy he was about reaching the finals: “I’m really excited that my cake has made the final because the competition is so high. Winning would be so cool! I love cooking vegan food and I want to spread the message and help other people realise that you can make amazing things without using animal products.”
With all of the controversy around vegan parenting in the media recently, we think it’s fantastic that William’s parents are encouraging him to show off his vegan cooking skills and show the world that you can live a happy, healthy and cruelty-free lifestyle at any age.
