STRAWBERRY LAYER CAKE



Yesterday I Made:
STRAWBERRY LAYER CAKE for DESSERT.
A strawberry triple threat cake:
-Real pureed strawberries in the batter.
-Thinly sliced strawberries layered in between the two slices.
-Halved strawberries on the outside of the cake.

This cake turned out moist and light.
The frosting was made up of vegan cream cheese, powdered sugar and orange juice.
A little sweet, but I've never been a fan of cake frosting.

The original recipe is not vegan, but I made a few simple substitutions:
-Egg Replacer instead of eggs.
-Earth Balance instead of butter.
-Soymilk mixed with apple cider to mimic buttermilk.
-Vegan cream cheese instead of regular cow's milk cream cheese.

And to make it even healthier, I used half whole wheat pastry and whole wheat flours instead of all purpose.

This cake is perfect for a gathering such as a baby shower, bridal shower, afternoon tea, or when you want to bring a smile to your husband's face after coming home from a long day at work!
