Vegan Dessert Boutique Opens in Parsons Green

Founder Marianne Gibson aims to offer cruelty free cakes and gelato

Mookind is on the New Kings Road

A new dessert shop has opened in Parsons Green offering plant based cakes and gelato.

26-year-old plant-based entrepreneur Marianne Gibson launched the shop New Kings Road in Parsons Green to showcase the Mookind collection of desserts.

The store claims to offer the biggest selection of vegan desserts in London, using responsibly sourced, natural, whole-food ingredients.

It has an exclusively vegan bakery and gelato kitchens and can offer birthday cakes made to order for parties, weddings, and events.

The inspiration for the shop stems from Marianne’s drive to eliminate animal cruelty. She converted to being plant-based in 2017.

“Our motto is ‘Kind to Every Kind’,” said Marianne.

“I am passionate about enabling people to make small changes to their daily routines which aids the fight against animal cruelty. The products taste as good, if not better, than their dairy-based alternatives.

“I am excited for the future as I have plans to expand the brand and open up more stores over the next three years. I encourage people to keep an eye out for more news as my plans develop further.”

Mookind is situated opposite the park at Parsons Green.

All cakes are created using non-refined sugars with a range of gluten free options. Other allergies are catered for and if you have any specific dietary requirements, Marianne is willing to look into developing suitable alternatives.
