So long, VeganMoFo.


This post was from November 30th, the official end of Vegan Mofo, the Vegan Month of Food. Course I didn't post it that day, why would I? We didn't actually stick with VeganMoFo we well as I would have liked, but it did really get me in the habit of updating this blog and also discovering loads of fun vegan blogs. I hope everyone keeps up with them now that we are off the clock.

On our last day of the month, we baked a cake for my parents for their anniversary. it was a quickie cake, as I wasn't feeling too great and we had to be done before basketball practice, but it was yummy! Just ask Shae....

Haha. Totally drunk off chocolate cake mix! We used our favorite easy cake recipe from La Dolce Vegan, and topped it off with Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World's Fluffy White Buttercream. Tinted some of the frosting pinkish red and flavored it raspberry and threw some letting on the cake. My first time, so yeah, that's kind of obvious I think. It was good though!

The cake looks yummy, and the icing looks gorgeous! I have a fair share of understanding for making cakes, my first cake for people basically consisted of chocolate frosting with lots of un-vegan candies (there's not much choice here for vegan candies) but it was a big hit still.

& Shae looks drunk with chocolate pride, mmmmm!

nicolette-

cakes decorated in candies are the best! i have the urge to make more cakes to practice my piping skills, or rather, get some piping skills! much too much cupcakes in my recent past with just huge towers of frosting! <3
