Wow, it’s been such a long time since the last update! Would you believe I was too busy cooking to have time to update? Bad blogger. Anyway, last week I made two cakes for my dad’s birthday, because he had two parties. The first one above was a vanilla cake from here with sliced strawberries plus strawberry jam in the middle, and chocolate frosting.
The second cake was the orange variation of the above cake, printed in Kittee’s Papa Tofu zine. Basically, you replace the water with orange juice, replace the vanilla with triple sec (I used Cointreau), and add two tablespoons orange zest. For the filling I sliced up oranges and mixed them with a bit of Cointreau. The icing was just a basic frosting using Tofutti cream cheese.
