This is Isa’s Raspberry Blackout Cake from Vegan with a Vengeance. Actually, this is a strawberry version, which is how I always make it. See, instead of jam I make the filling for the blondie bars from VWAV. Again, using strawberries instead of the recommended fruit– can I do nothing as directed? Truly, I am a rebel (No, I am not).
It’s our birthday cake. As in, THE birthday cake for all birthdays in our household. Well, all adult birthdays (maybe when you hit the double digits, darlings). So, I make this cake often enough (multiple times a year every year since VWAV came out), and I can NEVER get it to look nice. Literally, this is the prettiest I’ve every made this cake. Most often it looks like a heap of, well, not nice things that should make you lose your appetite. Thank goodness it is so delicious our stomach’s love overrides our eye’s logic (something like “
DO NOT WANT I want you inside me!”).
But, I hadn’t meant to talk so much about this hideously delicious cake. I just didn’t want to make a post dedicated solely to my MoFo pinboard.
Pinterest has really added another dimension to this year’s MoFo. It’s hard to keep up with all the blogs participating, and Pinterest has been a great way to see what other people are digging and find stuff I overlooked whilst perusing my reader. So, yes, I have a VeganMofo pinboard on Pinterest (Yes, I did just link to it twice). Do you? Post a link in the comments, and I’ll follow.
