Thanksgiving is almost there and all of you must be super busy in the kitchen making dish after dish to host family and friends. With all the complicated, multi-step recipes no wonder it’s a stressful time of the year for those slogging in the kitchen especially while others might be having a ball of a time!
Note: The cake is vegan but not the frosting. Use necessary substitutes to make the frosting vegan too. Or check out here for vegan cream cheese frosting recipe.
My son got lucky this year and I baked 2 cakes for his birthday. The first one was this fabulous egg free 6 layered rainbow cake and the second was this gorgeous vegan beet chocolate cake. Yes, I agree this cake looks girly with a pink frosting but who cares, when it tastes and looks this good!
It was my eldest son’s birthday on the 24th. We had a busy week before that and I couldn’t plan well in advance, like I usually do for his birthday cake. I didn’t have any fancy cake baking/decorating supplies too stocked up at home. Had to pull it off with what was readily available. Had some food coloring, sprinkles and colored sugar. All I could come up with was a rainbow cake. I was also not having a party per se. It was just us, a family of 4 and 3 friends of his. So I didn’t want a big cake either. Decided to use my easy eggless cupcakes recipe as a base for this cake and proceeded.
