We celebrated vegan boyfriend’s birthday this weekend, with a chocolate peanut butter cake. The recipe for the cake itself is the same as the one from my birthday cake, only doubled and baked in two 9 inch cake pans (it’s much easier to transport a cake like this than the taller but smaller cake I made for my birthday). I also used a little bit of peanut oil in place of some of the canola (about 1 Tbs per cake). The frosting is from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (p. 151). I tripled that recipe because double wasn’t quite enough, but had plenty of leftovers.
This was my first time writing a message in chocolate. It didn’t come out perfect, but it wasn’t a terrible first try! I used this video to help me.
I was very proud of my cake, and I know it was enjoyed. 🙂
