Poundland sell sets of measuring cups. I do find a lot of vegan cake recipes are in cup measures and it's probably worth investing in a set. If you choose to buy these just be aware they have 2 cup...

What makes you think that plaster is not vegan? A traditional plaster is made from a mixture of minerals, I can't see what animal ingredients would be used?

I get cleaning products from the Co-op, they often have buy-one-get-one-half-price offers, they don't test and they state on the packaging that the products don't contain animal ingredients.
