Eggless Vanilla Cake

This is my eggless vanilla cake recipe based on my Crunchy Lemon Muffin & Doughnut Muffin recipes (which can be made eggless too!) They are super light and fluffy, great by itself or iced with my Perfect Buttercream Icing. I made these for the girls’ 1st birthday smash cakes as they showed signs of an egg allergy & I didn’t want to risk any flare ups during their cake smash session!

Flower Power Cake

This was the cake that I made for my grandma’s 87th birthday!

This was a really easy and simple cake to make and includes:

1. 30 Second Vanilla Buttercake (x 2 cakes in 20cm cake tins) with toasted coconut in-between cake layers

2. Perfect Buttercream Icing (x 4 batches) piped with a Wilton 2D piping tip

3. Candy Melt Flowers (Red and Pink Candy Melts melted in ziplock bags and piped into flower shapes) with edible gold leaf.

I don’t speak/read/write in Chinese, however I copied some Chinese writing which says ‘Happy Birthday’ for my Chinese speaking grandma – and lucky she knew what it said! I was worried I copied the characters poorly lol!!

Assembly of the cake is illustrated in the photos below:
