Today was one of my best friend, Dani's birthday, so I decided that I would attempt at making my first ever vegan chocolate cake. I found both the cake and frosting recipe on vegweb.com (a really incredible website). Instead of using regular sugar for the cake recipe I used brown sugar and also added some vegan, grain sweetened chocolate chips to the batter. I decorated the top layer (it was a double layer cake) with a few vegan chocolate chips and some slices of an organic strawberry. For the frosting, instead of using cocoa powder, I melted some high-quality unsweetened baking chocolate to mix in. It was a great touch and worked out great. Between each layer of cake there was a thick spread of the frosting and chocolate chips. It was pure magic if I do say so myself. Everyone at Dani's birthday dinner loved it. Enjoy the photos and links to the recipes!
