Buttercream Cake


Super tasty butter cream cake, is perfect for covering with fondant. I made the cake for a birthday. Everyone was thrilled and nobody noticed that the cake is vegan. 🍰

As a trained confectioner I love to create beautiful and delicious cakes. This cake is my first vegan cake, that was a challenge to find a good recipe. I am very demanding when it comes to my profession and recipes for cakes. But this recipe has been very successful for me 😃 The recipe was inspired by the blog of Zucker & Jagdwurst. Now I have finally found a good recipe for a vegan biscuit base.

I hope you enjoy baking after,

Your Lea ❤️
